Landscape Artist of the Year 2019 - Heats and Semi-Final Locations

A follow up on my earlier post about Wildcard Artists wanted for Landscape Artist of the Year 2019 - this time focusing on
  • the Heats which have taken place - with pics wetting our appetites for the broadcast in the Autumn!
  • the Heats next Wednesday and Thursday - and where to go if you want to watch
  • the LOCATION of the Semi Final!

HEAT 1 & 2: Herstmonceux, East Sussex

Looks like I got it precisely right for the two locations at Herstmonceux, East Sussex.

The Observatory Science Centre at Herstmonceux certainly featured on the first day

and it looks like it was Herstmonceux Castle on the second day

HEATS 3 & 4: Plymouth, Devon

I also guessed right that a likely location for the second set of Heats was Plymouth Hoe

although I'm not sure it was quite the weather they wanted on at least one of the days

HEATS 5 & 6: Gateshead, Tyne and Wear

Landscape Artist of the Year 2019 are filming two of the competition heats NEXT WEEK - on the banks of the River Tyne in Gateshead

They've also told us the location

Venue: HMS Calliope, next to Baltic Square, NE8 2BE.
Dates: Wednesday 3rd July and Thursday 4th July.
Hours: 10am - 6pm

You're invited to join the filming on those days to soak up the atmosphere and support the artists - anytime between 10am and 6pm

Don't forget to let us know on social media what it looks like!

The Semi-Final

I can also tell you that the semi-final will be somewhere at Cromarty, Nr Inverness in Scotland. Which makes for a long hike for those who want to watch!
