National Trust of Guernsey is delighted to be part of Sarnia Arts & Crafts Club ‘Plein Air Painting Competition’ to be held on Tuesday 19th June, 2018.
Participants will meet at Les Caches Farm, Les Villets from 9:30 am to 10:00 am for entry procedure (see link below) and, will take up chosen vantage points on National Trust of Guernsey land above Le Gouffre, to paint any outdoor composition of choice. National Trust of Guernsey is grateful to Insurance Corporation, Guernsey Trees for Life and Guernsey Conservation Volunteers for the opportunity to have established The Queen’s Jubilee Wood at Trust land, donated by the Breedijke family. To see a little history of how this land has evolved, please see here.

The winning entry, along with all other entries, will be displayed at Les Caches Farm from Wednesday 20th June to Friday 22nd June, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Please support the competition and come along to view the exhibition.
