The barn will be filled with paintings created by regional artists who painted all over the Applegate Valley during a one-day plein-air quick paint earlier in the day. You read that correctly — all the paintings will be less than 8 hours old.

There will also be a few select works created by Ruch School students included in the auction. All of the pieces will be available for you to bid on (via anonymous silent auction) while you meet the artists, nibble on tasty appetizers and sip local wine.

The net proceeds of the auction and ticket sales will be donated to fund 2023-2024 art programs at Ruch School. Your participation in this event will help the school maintain vibrant creative experiences for their students.

REGISTRATION FORM AT BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE (follow this link)

Please support art programs at RUCH OUTDOOR COMMUNITY SCHOOL

Ruch Outdoor Community School students embark on local projects that have tangible results and observable outcomes.

Where Do I Paint?

We are encouraging folks to paint in the Applegate Valley, which is just 10 minutes outside of Jacksonville, OR. Here are some great resources.

Wander Applegate
Applegate Connect
The Applegater
Southern Oregon Lavender Trail
The Applegate Valley Wine Trail
PDF Map or Applegate Valley

Here’s how the plein air quick paint for river school works

Summary:

  • The goal of the Quick Paint is to raise money for Ruch Outdoor Community School by selling plein air paintings (created earlier in the day) at The Fresh Art Reception and Silent Auction. Reception tickets sales also donated to the school.
  • You start when and where you want. We’re encouraging people to paint in the Applegate Valley, but it’s up to you. We want what is most convenient for you.
  • You are very welcome to paint at our lavender farm as many others have in the past. We will also be serving as a “friendly port” for all artists who need a snack, drinks and or to get out of the heat. Please let us know if you plan to paint here so we have sufficient supplies.
  • Stop painting at 4pm and deliver your fresh creations to our barn at 375 Hamilton Road in Ruch by 6pm. (mailing address is Jacksonville).
  • Put your name, contact info, and auction reserve price on the back of each painting.
  • You receive 80% of the auction sale price – 20% is donated to Ruch School.
  • You are welcome to stay and enjoy the reception/auction at no charge.
  • Any unsold works at the auction will continue to be for sale for the rest of the weekend – you can adjust the reserve price if you wish.
  • ALL paintings remain in our barn through Sunday at 5pm.

Artists Must Agree to:

  • Start and finish your painting on the day of the event – finish by 4pm. There is no starting check-in or starting event. You can start where and when you like. There is also no authentication process for validating “same day” status of your work – we trust you.
  • Deliver your completed work to our barn (375 Hamilton Road in Ruch) by 6pm.
  • Help us display the art. The simplest solution is to find a way that it can be hung (we have lots of space to hang on) or bring an easel (standing or table).
  • Write your name and contact information on the back of the painting along with your “reserve” lowest acceptable price.
  • Paintings will then be sold via silent auction during the evening reception. If they do not sell at auction, they will remain on sale for the next two days in our barn during the lavender festival. You can adjust your reserve price for the festival days.
  • 20% of the painting sale will be donated to Ruch School and 80% will go to the artist.
  • Paintings must remain in the barn for the remainder of the Lavender Festival – until 5pm Sunday night.
  • Any paintings that do not sell during the auction will remain on sale during the next two days as thousands of people will be attending the Southern Oregon Lavender Festival.
  • Paintings can be picked up anytime after 5pm Sunday. We can arrange to ship a painting (at cost) if it is a hardship to return to our farm for out of town participants.

Artists are encouraged to:

  • Attend the Fresh Painting Reception and Silent Auction at no charge – you will be guests of honor. The event is VERY casual and attendees showing up with paint on their clothes will be celebrated. There will be hors d’oeuvre and one glass of wine included – cash bar after that.
  • Meet and greet enthusiastic silent auction attendees and members of Ruch school.
  • Price paintings at an “accessible” level to encourage generous bidding. We have purposely set the rates to encourage giving to the school.
  • This is a non-juried, open event and we encourage artists of all levels to participate. There is not really any competitive aspect to the event.
  • While we refer to the event as “plein-air” we are pretty open to any artist that wants to contribute and help Ruch School.
  • Artists are encouraged to paint in the Applegate Valley but again, there are no hard rules for this. FYI, there will be six lavender fields in vibrant bloom on the day of this event. 🙂
  • We will provide snacks and drinks for any artists that want to paint at our farm or to swing by during the day. If you are coming, or think you might, please let us know. Artists will also have access to rest areas and bathrooms in our air conditioned house.
  • If the paintings do not sell, they will remain on sale during the remainder of the Lavender Festival where many people may purchase them.
  • Artists will receive their payment within 7 days of the event but we will do our best process and pay transactions during the reception.

We understand that there are very real expenses for you to participate in this fundraising event and we greatly appreciate your efforts.

Please fill out the form below or call/text Rob Rustad at 831-521-5344 or email [email protected].
