Artistspaintoclogomaster Words

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. Artists will paint the picturesque spots of the Ocean City area, then gather at the Arts Center on Saturday to hang their best work and offer it for sale from 5-7 p.m. at a free reception open to the public.
