The Arts Council's annual plein air paint-out is fun for artists and spectators alike! Over the course of the weekend, juried artists will set up their easels throughout Ellicott City’s historic district to capture the town’s picturesque charms as they vie for nearly $10,000 in juror awards. Community artists are invited to join the fun as part of Open Paint, which takes place concurrently. The event culminates in an exhibit of the juried artists' work at the Howard County Center for the Arts.
Registration for Open Paint is $10.
