KENSINGTON MD ANNUAL LABOR DAY SHOW

"PAINT THE TOWN" PLEIN AIR EVENT

 

   This year's plein air paint-out was held on Saturday, September 1, 2018.  Rain was predicted, but we were lucky, and it was only cloudy.  Paintings are completed and handed in the same day, by 3 p.m.  All of the work by the participating plein air artists is then displayed as part of the larger annual show at the Kensington Armory, sponsored by Montgomery Art Association, through Monday Labor Day.  This annual event is one of the largest shows held in this area, and participated in by many if not most of our local artists.

The 12th Annual Barnstormers Tour took place on Saturday, June 9, 2018.  This year's tour included nine farms, all in the beautiful mountain farm area of Wolfsville, MD.  Docents were available at the barns to answer questions.  40 Maryland artists painted at the barns during the tour. At the end of the afternoon, a reception and art show was held at Dreamland Farm in Wolfsville, headquarters for the tour.  The paintings were all framed and offered for sale, and country music entertainment by the Gravy Soppers added to festivities.  We were worried because of a weather report of cloudy and thundershowers, but instead the weather was mostly sunny and a bit hot. 

 

The annual tours are sponsored by the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation. It is an annual fundraiser to increase awareness and inspire a passion for the older barns of Frederick County.
