World-class plein-air artists gather each year at Kings Landing to paint moments rich in history during Paint the Past. Stunning artworks are created each year during this 3-day festival. All pieces will be on display for-sale in MacBeath Hall in the Welcome Centre until mid-season. Guests are encouraged to chat with artists as they paint, participate in plein-air workshops during the festival, attend the awards ceremony, and purchase their favourite pieces. Proceeds from the sale of each piece support the artists and Kings Landing’s heritage initiatives.
The grand prize is $1000 and the title of Kings Landing Artist-in-Residence for 12 consecutive months.
Poppy Balser was selected to be Kings Landing’s 2017-2018 Artist-in-Residence during the Paint the Past 2017 Award Ceremony.
