Mackinaw City Paint Out


Event Date:

August 2nd, 2014

The Mackinaw City Paint Out is scheduled for Saturday August 2nd 10-4pm with check in from 7:00-10:00am at the Historic Village Chapel on Central Avenue. Please bring you canvases to check in so we can date stamp the back. This event will take place during the Heritage festival.

At 3:30 pm artists will be asked to bring their paintings to the Chapel where our judge, Richard Jordan will review the pieces from each participating artist and then select a first second and third place winner. Richard Jordan is a Michigan based painter and the founder of the West Michigan Plein Air Artists. Framing is encouraged for this event but not mandatory. Judging will start at 4pm.

The headlands, Dark Sky Park, McGulpin Point, Wilderness State Park, Mackinaw Crossing along with the Mackinaw City downtown area, marina and bridge park are available for artists interpretation. We do ask that you start and complete your work on location. We can assist you with moving materials, watch your easels for bathroom breaks and bring your lunch and beverages.

This is a volunteer event replicating the Impressionist era where artists would paint and work together for a day in the park.

Questions or a request for a participation form can be emailed to or call Lorie Axtell @ 989-529-0752.
