Mountain Maryland Plein Air

This event brings artists from across the United States to Western Maryland for a week of outdoor painting. The plein air competition is not just for artists. The week-long series of events and activities is also perfect for those interested in observing and collecting the work of these talented painters. Be on the lookout for artists with their easels beginning Tuesday, June 15. Then join us for opportunities later in the week to watch artists work up-close and to purchase paintings.

Quick Draw: Friday, June 18, from 10:00AM – 12:00PM on the Downtown Cumberland Mall.

Collector’s Reception: Saturday, June 19 from 6:00PM – 8:00PM at the Cumberland Country Club (ticketed event).
