Artist Lock-In at the Church in the Middle of the Block

July 30, 2013 - Emily Dimov-Gottshall
Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Altoona


Artist Lock-In

You are cordially invited to participate in the SAMA-Altoona "Artist Lock-In" painting event. "Artist Lock-In" is a weekend affair that provides artists a unique opportunity to paint and enjoy Altoona's picturesque Church in the Middle of the Block.

On the morning of Friday, August 16, 2013, artists will meet at the Church for nearly two full days of painting. Artists will be "locked in" from 10 a.m. Friday through 5 p.m. Saturday, August 17. Bunk beds and air mattresses will be provided at the Church, which also offers restroom facilities, showers, access to a refrigerator and a cooking area. Meals and wine will be provided. Artists are encouraged to bring a pillow, blankets, sleep roll, towels, and personal items.

During the weekend, artists will have the opportunity to paint the Church's beautiful interior architecture, as well as its exquisite gardens and grounds. At least one live model also will be available for painting. One dozen easels will be available on a first come-first served basis. Please note that no cameras are allowed on Church property. The works painted over the weekend will be auctioned at SAMA-Altoona's annual fundraiser on Friday, November 1, 2013. Artists will receive 75% of the sale price and SAMA will retain 25%.

Space for the "Artist Lock-In" is limited. To register, artists must pay a $30 (non-refundable) registration fee and complete, detach and mail the Entry Form and check to:
