The Howard County Arts Council hosts a special closing reception for Paint It! Ellicott City 2016 Friday, September 30 from 6–8pm, to benefit the Re-create: Ellicott City Artist Relief Fund, established by the Arts Council to assist Ellicott City artists impacted by the devastating flood in July. The Arts Council’s 20% commission on artwork sales from the exhibit will be donated to the relief fund. Many Paint It! artists have generously agreed to donate some or all of their portion of sales as well. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to connect with local artists, purchase artwork and support the Arts Council's Ellicott City relief efforts.
Through Re-create, eligible individual artists and nonprofit arts organizations will be able to apply for emergency relief funding.
Paint It! Ellicott City 2016 is on view through September 30. Gallery hours: Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-4pm, Sun 12-4pm.
