Plein Air Easton’s Quick Draw Competition (this year held on Saturday, July 21st) is the most exciting event held within the week. In this fast-paced skilled painting competition, any artist with $10 and ambition has 2 hours to turn a blank canvas into a completed painting. The event has been known to have as many as 200 artists vying for any patch of shade to produce their best work surrounded by crowds of people strolling through the streets. It can be both exhilarating and frightening to even the most seasoned artists.
July 20th – 22nd at The Tidewater Inn - Downtown Easton, MD
