Paint the Town 2017
RiverArts is pleased to host its eighth annual plein air event, Paint the Town, April 27 through 30. The Paint the Town event is popular with plein air artists all over the mid-Atlantic region because of the natural beauty of our area, with its many waterways and farm fields, historic buildings, gardens, and wonderful sky scapes.
Artists paint the local scene for three days and make their paintings available for sale at the Wet Paint Reception and Sale on Saturday at the RiverArts Gallery. On Sunday, there is a two-hour Quick Draw; these paintings are then shown in Fountain Park from 11:00am-12:00pm. These works are judged, and also for sale. The public also has an opportunity to vote for the “People’s Choice Award.
