Artists Paint OC 2016

Plein Air Event: August 11th – 14th, 2016 (Thursday-Sunday)
Wet Paint Sale: August 13th, 2016

Plein Air with Boardwalk

Welcome to the Art League of Ocean City’s 2016 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.

More than 50 artists will paint the picturesque spots of the Ocean City area Thursday through Saturday, August 11-13. They will then gather at the Arts Center on Saturday to hang their best work for our WET PAINT SALE August 13, 6-8PM. The competition show will continue on display at the Arts Center through August 27. Click Here for a complete information packet.

The event continues with a QUICK DRAW COMPETITION at South Division St. and the boardwalk on Sunday August 14th from 9AM-11AM, where you can watch artists paint against the clock. Purchase artwork right off the easel from 11:30-1PM!
