Art in a Day – Forest of Dean – 2019

Art in a Day – Forest of Dean is organised by Artspace Cinderford, a registered arts and education charity based in the Forest of Dean (charity No. 1053492). Established in 1988, the organisation offers a varied programme of creative workshops for adults and children and specialises in the provision of fully inclusive, accessible, creative opportunities for people of any age or ability.

2019 sees the third year of our painting competition and exhibition. A celebration of art in the beautiful Forest of Dean. It is open to all. The idea is for artists to create in the open air throughout the forest on Saturday, June 29th, 2019. A still life will be set up at Artspace to enable those who are unable to work outside to participate.

During the evening of June 29th and on Monday and Tuesday the following week, artists, family, friends and members of the public will have the opportunity to view and buy the artwork.

Saturday, June 29th: Painting Day. After choosing a location, each artist has a day to create their artwork. They use their own materials and work in any style and medium. The maximum size, including the frame, is A1 (i.e. 594mm × 841mm or 23.4″ × 33.1″).

Saturday, June 29th, 7.30 p.m.: Private View at Artspace Cinderford, The New Mercury, 3 Woodside Street, Cinderford, Gloucestershire, GL14 2NL.
