Paint-Out in Historic Ellicott City: July 7–9
Quick Draw Competition: July 8, 10am–12pm
Exhibit Reception at HCCA: July 10, 6–8pm
Spend a fun summer weekend exploring the shops and sidewalks of Historic Ellicott City and meeting Paint It! artists at work — or — grab your brushes and easel and paint alongside our juried artists! For a small registration fee, you can also participate in our Open Paint-Out and display your work during the opening reception. For more details click here or call 410-313-ARTS (2787).
The popular Quick Draw competition, in which artists take a plein air painting from start to finish in just two hours, returns for a third year. A pop-up exhibit and sale of work completed during the competition is fun for artists, art collectors, and spectators! Artists interested in participating should contact Chuck Gruss at Mat About You Framing & Gallery (email@example.com / 410-313-8860).
Paint It! culminates in an exhibit of the juried artists’ work at the Center for the Arts from July 10 to August 11, featuring an opening reception on July 10 with awards presented by guest juror Hai-Ou Hou and a one-night exhibit of work created by Open Paint-Out artists.
We’re looking for volunteers to help out during Paint It! Volunteers help in many ways: checking in artists, photographing them as they paint, helping out at the Quick Draw, setting up for the reception, and more. If you are interested in volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
