2011 Painters Challenge
On Sunday 9 October 2011 amateur artists are invited to join renowned Snowdonia artist Alison Bradley at Tŷ Hyll (the Ugly House) near Capel Curig for the 2011 Painters Challenge hosted by the Snowdonia Society.
Starting painting at 10.30am, artists will receive guidance and advice from Alison while creating a piece of work in any medium based on the theme 'nature'. Inspired by this beautiful setting, with five acres of garden and woodland and the Afon Llugwy nearby, artists have all day to create a masterpiece! At the end of the afternoon everyone will gather in Tŷ Hyll for refreshments, and Alison will award a £100 gallery voucher to the work of art she feels is most deserving. Two runners up will also receive an annual subscription to Natur Cymru magazine, which always features a unique piece of wildlife art on its front cover.
This is a unique opportunity for local artists to come together and be inspired by the woodlands and wildlife garden that our volunteers have worked so hard to create, as well as this iconic house. We hope to make this an annual event, celebrating and encouraging creativity in Snowdonia!
The event is being held with the generous support of Alison’s Gallery in Betws y Coed and Natur Cymru magazine.
