Steveston Grand Prix of Art nears

Planning for the 2012 Steveston Grand Prix of Art is well underway as the third annual art event in the fishing village nears.

Organized by the Phoenix Art Workshop, the Grand Prix welcomes artists from around the province to participate in a day of plein air painting in Steveston.

Participating artists will be given a location where they'll have three hours to complete a work of art. The artists will then bring their finished work to Britannia Heritage Shipyard for display.

Works will be judged, and visitors will also have a chance to vote for their favourite through a People's Choice Award.

The art race is Saturday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Paintings will be displayed at Britannia from 3 to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, Sept. 23, until 4 p.m.
