Artists Paint OC: A Plein Air Event
Welcome to the Art League of Ocean City’s 2020 Plein
Air Event! Artists will take to the boardwalk, streets, harbors, bay and
marshes to participate. “En plein air” is a French expression that means “in
the open air,” used to describe the art of painting outdoors. Plein air events
take place wherever the scenery is inspirational, artists congregate to paint
it, and watchers gather to see the painters make art right before their eyes.
Artists will paint the picturesque spots of the Ocean City area Wednesday through Saturday, August 12-16. Then gather at the Arts Center on Saturday to hang your best work and offer it for sale from 5-8 p.m. at a free reception open to the public. The entries juried in will continue on display at the Arts Center through August 29.
