Tilghman Island hosted the first pre-competition paint out on Thursday, July 9th. All of the juried Plein Air Easton artists were invited to participate in the third annual paint-out and around forty artists did just that. Throughout the day, artists could be seen sprinkled throughout the island painting whatever caught their eyes.
You can always go to the movies or visit a museum. Dinner out is great but you can do that anytime. Summer baseball games are fun but pretty common. There's always an interesting auction to attend. There are lots and lots of things to do and most of them are nice--but not really, really special.
However, Plein Air Easton artists descending on Cambridge happens only once a year. This year it will be July 10th and, like last year, it will be really special.
It’s the 11th year of Plein Air Easton and rather than rest on the laurels of its 10th year celebration, the most successful to date, Plein Air Easton has reimagined some of its signature events: The Collectors Preview Party; Awards Ceremony; the Library; and the i.g. Burton BMW Competition Galleries.
Plein Air Easton will soon be upon us but it is not too late to apply to Local Color! The show is held annually during Plein Air Easton at the Tidewater Inn, July 17-19. If you are an artist living on the Eastern Shore, don't miss the opportunity to exhibit and sell your work along with some of the best artistic talent that Delmarva has to offer.
