Grand Prix of Art – Steveston 2015

Another successful year complete! Hosted by Phoenix Art Workshop and the Richmond Artists Guild, The‘s 6th Annual Grand Prix of Art – Steveston took place on Saturday, September 19th, 2015. More than 100 artists of all ages and 7 photographers came out to the historic Steveston Village, and competed in a grueling 3-hour plein air painting race; maybe the most challenging Grand Prix of Art ever with the torrential downpour. At the end of the race, the artworks were put on display in the Britannia Heritage Shipyard for adjudication while artists and visitors were treated to a wonderful lunch with musical entertainment (catered by Steveston’s own Bean and Beyond).

Phoenix Art Workshop and the, would like to thank our 50+ volunteers, musicians and Judges, our key hosts and our amazing community and location partners for helping make this event a success once again. Thursday was more or less anti-climatic after the excitement of our actual event day, with the exception of our Photography Winner announcements and the announcement of our First ever Grand Prix of Art Champion.

Also, a quick reminder of our travel night tonight at 7:00pm at the studio ( 12211 1st Ave, 3rd floor above Bell’s cupcake’s).  JOIN US for a slide show of our upcoming trips and exhibition of paintings/reception as we launch our 2016 trips.
