The Working Artists Forum Releases Prospectus
14th Annual Local Color Art Show & Sale
The Working Artists Forum invites artists of the Delmarva Peninsula to submit applications to 14th Annual Local Color Art Show & Sale. The three day event offers collectors an exceptional opportunity to view and purchase beautiful original art created in studio or en plein air by 42 working artists from around the Eastern Shore. The show takes place the last weekend of Plein Air Easton, Friday, July 20th- Sunday July 22nd. The event takes place at Easton's Tidewater Inn, held in conjunction with The Plein Air Easton Art Festival.
Local Color is juried and judged by winners of the previous year’s Plein Air Easton Festival. The show judge this year is Joe Gyurcsak, Plein Air Easton’s 2017 Grand Prize winner. Local Color is juried this year by Hai Ou Hou, the 2017 Plein Air Easton second place winner. We are delighted to announce that Friday, Joe and Hai Ou will offer the first two of five free painting demonstrations sponsored by The Working Artists throughout the weekend. Enjoy the opportunity to observe and chat with the Local Color artists that will have their easels set up outside The Tidewater Inn.
The prospectus/call to artists is online at Working Artists Forum. Delmarva artists wishing to apply for Local Color will register on the website on or before the March 9th deadline. Please email Doris Glovier if you would like to be added to our standing email list.
