Light Chasers Quick Draw Contest at Phillippi Estate Park, March 8

Date: March 08, 2017

Time: 9:00 am

Artists paint from 9 am to 11 am all over Phillippi Estate Park and the famous Wednesday Farmer’s Market. Artists bring their paintings to the Farmer’s Market for judging and for sale. Prizes are awarded at noon. Judge is the esteemed painter Dominic Avant, one of the Light Chaser’s Master Painters and a professor at Ringling College of Art. The paintings stay up and for sale until the market closes at 2 pm. 

Last year, the Farmer’s Market said this was their biggest event in seven years! Over 4000 people came to at least one of the Light Chasers Art in The Park events at Phillippi Estate Park. The Quick Draw is followed by the largest paint out in Florida. Artists paint all over Sarasota County. You can find out where the artists will be painting on the Light Chaser website http://lightchasersinc.com/.

The arts festival culminates with a fabulous art gala weekend March 17- March 19 at the beautiful Edson Keith Mansion at Phillippi.  All events are free to attend. We appreciate a donation at the door for the renovation of the Keith Farmhouse. Over 200 painters display their works during the weekend festivities. Don’t miss the gorgeous Kick Off: Light Chasers Quick Draw Contest on March 8th at the Phillippi Estate Park and Farmer’s Market. It is one of the most fun and beautiful art events of the year.
