Professional artists from around the Mid-Atlantic region will set up their easels throughout Historic Ellicott City for three days July 10-12, capturing the city’s unique charm and character while competing for at least $5,000 in cash prizes during Paint It! Ellicott City 2015. The public is invited to come watch the painters in action, and artists from the community are invited to join the fun as Open Paint-Out participants. Paint It! will include two exciting new events this year: a Quick Draw Competition on July 11 from 10am–12pm, in which artists will compete for a cash prize as they take a painting from start to finish in just two hours; and a presentation and book signing by Gary Pendleton, author of 100 Plein Air Painters of the Mid-Atlantic. Following the three-day paint-out, the Howard County Arts Council will display nearly 50 of the paintings in the Paint It! Ellicott City juried exhibition in Gallery I at the Howard County Center for the Arts. An exhibit featuring works by 40 or more emerging and professional artists participating in the open (non-juried) paint-out will also be exhibited for one day in the center lobby.
