Government House of Western Australia

Open Weekend

En Plein Air Paintout 

Government House has kindly invited WASA Plein Air artists to paint on the grounds of Government House during their open day.

The event is open to the public, and WASA will have a stall available to us. 

 Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th October 2023 

9.00 am – 3.00 pm.

It is an opportunity for Plein Air artists to paint in the gardens and visitors to observe artists at work.

WASA will need to be self-sufficient - as you usually are (all own equipment and materials, chair, easels etc.)

WASA are welcome to set up easels for painting sessions anywhere in the Lower Garden - wherever there is free space.

As an adjunct to the painting session, WASA is also welcome to:

Display their art (it would be lovely to have some of the paintings your members have previously done of the Government House building itself).

Set up a stall to sell your art on the day

Kindly note that there is NO power supply or source available (i.e. for hand-held EFTPOS machine)

*If WASA do elect to set up a stall, set up will need to be complete prior to 10.00 am and pack down can only commence after 3.00 pm on Saturday or Sunday (i.e., before and after the grounds are open to visitors)

We would require approximate dimensions of the stall a week prior to the Open Day as well as an outline of how WASA intends to display artworks (as applicable)

We will also need an approximate number of painters attending on the day from you a week in advance and the number of WASA members who will be manning the stall and/or displays.

Please Advise - or if you will be attending, as numbers are limited.
