Portrait Sketch Competition Deadline is Sept. 15

By Mackenzie Swenson
The deadline for GCA's 2nd Portrait Sketch Competition has been extended to Tuesday, September 15. Back-to-school is a busy time but we hope that all of you fierce alla prima portrait painters who are interested in competing will throw your hat in the ring!

The competition will last three days from October 21 - 23, 2015. We usually host competitions during the summer but thought we would give the beautiful, bustling fall season a try!

Competition Details:
Ten painters selected from online applications will compete to paint six four hour portraits over three days. First and Second place winners will be awarded $1,000 and $500 respectively. The judges Jacob Collins and Travis Schlaht (and a third TBD) will judge the paintings as a group.

The sixty paintings will be displayed in a month-long exhibition at Eleventh Street Arts.
