Upcoming EVENTS & Activities


Sat – Sept 22   10am-1pm   Steveston / Richmond BC 

GRAND PRIX of ART hosted by Phoenix Art Workshops in historic Steveston Village, Richmond, Canada. I am competing in the Masters category and look forward to seeing my “tribe” of plein air friends.

You are invited to watch artists of all experience levels and ages compete against the clock in this thrilling 3 hour Plein-Air Painting challenge.

Check in at the Britannia Heritage Shipyards to see where I will be painting. Artists only find out their painting location from 40 spots by lottery draw at 9 am. You can check the online event MAP for updates

Painters begins at 10 am at the sound of the whistle from the Cannery and finish precisely at 1 pm when the whistle blows again. ALL works will then be displayed at the Britannia Heritage site in Steveston from 3 pm – 6 pm on Saturday and from 12 noon until 4 pm on Sunday September 23.

Come and vote for or purchase your favourite painting in the exhibition, cheer for the juried winners and enjoy this great creative community event.


I will be participating in the Sunshine Coast ARTCRAWL this year!
OCT 19-21 I will be presenting a DEMO each day at 2pm, travel sketchbooks & watercolors, new large paintings and local plein air paintings. It is such a great event – with 144 venues last year – its a huge commitment of time & energy for the artists.

NEW WEBSITE here at janpoynter.com
Yes I know – it is sadly out of date. There will be some major changes to this website coming in 2019 so if you visit and it is not functioning – I apologise in advance…don’t hesitate to contact me directly. There will be a new SHOP and listing of the most recent paintings and custom giclees available.
I have been using INSTAGRAM lately so that’s the freshest work online. #jan.poynter
