Steveston Grand Prix of Art

I have had the opportunity to participate in 4 Grand Prix over the last several years, 3 in Steveston and 1 in Ladner.  The last two years I’ve been cruising and teaching at sea at the times of these events.  

I’m very excited to be participating again this year.

Mark Glavina, Artist and Owner of the Phoenix Art Workshop and the Travelling Brush does an incredible job setting this event up and providing the volunteers and all the entertainment that goes with this event.  It is an amazing feat! This year the registration has maxed out with 115 participants, 35 of which are going for the grand prize.  This is a new category this year - Masters - which allows the artists to advertise themselves and link to their websites and social media.  

Its wonderful to see so many amazing artists participating!  

The registration begins at 9am and artists are to be ready for the horn signal at 10am when they can start painting. It’s all random, you don’t get to pick your location, but pull it in a lottery format from the depths of the Grand Prix trophy. There will be music in two locations in Steveston as well as the Center of the Britannia Shipyards where artists recongregate for the framing, awards and then the opening of the exhibition!

all are welcome to watch, vote for the people’s choice and interact with the artists.  The paintings will be for sale!

see you there - sept 22nd, this Saturday, Steveston, B.C.
