Aug 11Aug 15, 2021

The Art League of Ocean City Center of the Arts

Watch artists at work as they set up their easels along the Boardwalk, bayside & beaches.

Artists will take to the boardwalk, streets, harbors, bay and marshes to participate in the Art League of Ocean City’s 2021 Plein Air Event. “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.

Artists will paint the picturesque spots of the Ocean City area Wednesday through Saturday, August 11-15. Then gather at the Arts Center on Saturday evening to hang your best work and offer it for sale from 5-8 p.m. at a free reception open to the public. The entries juried in will continue on display at the Arts Center through September 2021.

To find out more information on registering as an artist, visit the Art League of Ocean City's events page.
