(Seguin) -- Get ready for a Paint Out. The Seguin Art League is calling on artists whether amateur or professional to enter its second annual Painting in the Park, Paint Out contest on Friday followed by a Wet Paint Sale on Saturday during Seguin's Annual Pecan Fest events in downtown Seguin.

Art League President Liz Romero, says the theme for artists is "Anything, Seguin."
"We invite artists to come and paint around Seguin. They choose their spot that they want to paint. They choose the scene that they want to paint. They have to complete their painting on Friday and turn it in to us in the afternoon. Then on Saturday, we meet in front of the Park Plaza Hotel and we have our wet painting sale. We invite the public to look at the art and vote on their favorite painting. We just place numbers on the art so they won't know who the artist is. They'll choose their favorite painting. They'll give us the ballots and at the end of the day, we will count up the ballot and award first, second and third (place) prizes," said Romero.
Romero says all painting media will be accepted including pastel, pen, ink and pencil. She says participation in the contest begins by visiting
"Anybody who would like to come and paint, we have the perspective with the rules on our website, I will have some blank applications with me on Friday morning when artists are checking in. But, they must bring their own canvas. There are limitations on the size of the canvas. It needs to be wired and ready to hang -- one canvas and then, we stamp it when they check in. They will paint all day and bring their canvas back to us by five o'clock," said Romero.
In addition to offering up the best artwork, Romero says individuals will get the chance to make some money.
"Artist get 75 percent of the sale of the artwork and Seguin Art League retains a 25 percent commission," said Romero.

Those wishing to participate must sign up between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. Friday at the Seguin Art League located at 104 S. Austin St. Cost is $25 for non-members; $20 for members and $15 for students. Final judging on artwork will be at 3:30 p.m. Saturday with the announcement of the winners to follow. Those interested in the contest are also encouraged to call 830-491-9676.
