Set up your easel and paint the town!
Paint It! Ellicott City is an annual event that brings artists and spectators interested in the plein air tradition to Historic Ellicott City. Both juried and Open Paint artists set up their easels around the historic district, enjoying a summer weekend as they capture the picturesque mill town and all its charms.
Paint It! culminates in an exhibit of juried artists’ work in our gallery, which features an opening reception and juror’s award presentation. A temporary exhibit of work created by Open Paint artists is also on view in the lobby of the Center for the Arts. Artists and visitors may view and purchase the finished pieces during the reception.
The dates for Paint It! Ellicott City 2020 are June 25-29.
The deadline to apply for the juried portion of the event is April 12.
Applications for the non-juried Open Paint portion of the event will be available in May.
