Chestertown  RiverArts is preparing to host its eighth annual plein air event, Paint the Town. This year’s event will be held from April 27 through 30 in Chestertown, Maryland. Paint the Town is popular with plein air artists all over the mid-Atlantic region because of the natural beauty of the area, with its many waterways and farm fields, historic buildings, gardens, and wonderful sky scapes. Visiting artists also really appreciate the warm hospitality extended to them each year.

Registration for Paint the Town Includes:

  • ·      Three days of painting
  • ·      Artists’ dinner Friday night
  • ·      Informal lunch Saturday afternoon
  • ·      Wet Paint Reception & Sale Saturday night
  • ·      Quick Draw competition Sunday morning.

    ** New this year we will open the Quick Draw competition to additional artists not registered for the whole plein air event. Those interested for Quick Draw only must sign up by Thursday April 27.This is a good opportunity for anyone who might enjoy plein air painting but has not been able to commit to three days worth of work.


Housing will be offered to those who prefer to stay with local residents and breakfast goodies are available every morning in the gallery.

  • ·      February 7: Registration opens for Non Members. Limited to 50 painters. This limited number will allow each painter to have sufficient space to hang his or her work
  • ·      Registration Fee:   Members $50
                                     Non Members $60
  • ·      Cash prizes will be awarded at the Wet Paint show as well as the Quick Draw.
