KENSINGTON MD ANNUAL LABOR DAY SHOW

"PAINT THE TOWN" PLEIN AIR EVENT

 

   This year's plein air paint-out was held on Saturday, September 2, 2017.  It was raining all day, heavy at times.  It was a challenging day for plein air, but many determined artists participated (including me).  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 11th Annual Barnstormers Tour took place on Saturday, June 10, 2017.  This year's tour included eight farms, all in the beautiful Linganore Valley area of Frederick County.  Docents were available at the barns to answer questions.  35 Maryland artists painted at the barns during the tour. At the end of the afternoon, a reception and art show was held at the Gaver Farm in Mt. Airy, headquarters for the tour.  The paintings were all framed and offered for sale, and country music entertainment by the Gravy Soppers added to festivities.

 

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.
