St. Albert Painters Guild
The St. Albert Painters Guild will once again bring art to our city. Imagine a beautiful spring day, where you can safely and enjoyably view art by our talented artists. This time, we’re doing it from the outdoor spaces of our members’ homes - See List of Participating Artists.
Due to the pandemic this is a rare opportunity for many artists to show their work. And they’ve been working! This is a wonderful opportunity for the public too, whether you’re a collector or just curious.
AitO Painting Raffle
At every participating artist location you visit during Art in the Open, you get to enter your name in a raffle for a chance to win one of three beautiful paintings that have been generously donated by a guild artist.
All artist display locations will have raffle tickets for you to fill out (see Terms)...the more locations you visit increases your odds.
A draw of three raffle tickets will be made soon after Art in the Open. The first name drawn will have first choice, the second name drawn will choose from the remaining two options and the third name drawn will be gifted the remaining painting. Here are the raffle prizes (click on a thumbnail below to see a larger picture):
Raffle Terms & Conditions
If the same name is drawn more than once (because each person taking the Art Tour has up to 34 chances to enter!), multiple draws of the same name will be put aside and another draw made until 3 different winners are drawn. The order of names drawn will be adhered to as described above.
Name and phone number are mandatory on all raffle entries; email addresses are optional. Any slip without both a name and phone number will be discarded and a new entry drawn.
The draw will occur soon after June 19th and prize winners will be contacted.
Contact information on raffle entries (name, phone number and email address) will be kept private and will only be used for purposes of contacting a winner regarding their prize. SAPG would like to send one email to everyone who provides an optional email address in order to share a survey for feedback about Art in the Open. Contact information provided on the raffle slips will not be shared, sold or added to an external eList.
Based on direction from Alberta Health Services, the following COVID protocols must be followed by members of the public while visiting an artist booth/table at the AitO event (these will be updated on the website if we move into a new phase):
