Plein air artists are invited to participate in Chestertown RiverArts Sixth Annual “Paint the Town” event to be held Thursday, April 23 through Sunday, April 26 in Chestertown, MD. Registration is limited to the first 50 entrants. We are almost full so please complete your registration forms as soon as possible.
This fun-filled four-day event is held on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and it will be packed with beautiful venues, good food, and lots of camaraderie. Chestertown and its surrounding areas offer a wide range of subjects, including historic streetscapes, water views, gardens, rural farms, and a colorful outdoor Farmers Market. (Some covered venues will be identified in case of inclement weather.)
Local restauranteurs also will host the popular “Taste of the Town” in Fountain Park on Sunday.
RiverArts’ non-juried event is open to plein air artists painting in all media and includes dinner for all artists Friday evening, “Wet Paint” exhibition and sale on Saturday evening and a two-hour “Quick Draw” paint out on Sunday morning. Prizes will be awarded at both exhibits. This year, artists will also be invited to submit ‘minis’ (no more than 5″ x 7″) for a silent auction.
