Paint Snow Hill returns for 12th year, April 16-19

(April 9, 2015) For the 12th year, Snow Hill will be hosting plein air artists from throughout the Mid-Atlantic, April 16-19.
Again this year, 70 artists will be participating in the “paint out.” Ann Coates, organizer of the event, is pleased to have 20 registered artists who are featured in the recently published100 Plein Painters of the Mid-Atlantic.
Gary Pendleton, one of the participating artists, wrote and published the book to highlight the talented artists who live in the region.
“This level of participation shows the talent that is drawn to the beauty of the Lower Eastern Shore and Paint Snow Hill, the first plein air event on the Eastern Shore,” Coates said. “The event is always held the third weekend in April which offers the artists a relaxed ‘paint out’ to kick off spring plein air painting.”
Artists will paint in and around Snow Hill April 16-18. On Saturday, April 18 there will be a “Wet Paint” show and sale preview sponsored by Snow Hill’s Arts on the River Arts and Entertainment District from 6-8 p.m. at the Old Firehouse on Green Street. This “sneak peek” allows people to get the first look and opportunity to purchase paintings.
Admission for the preview is $30 per person which will be applied to the purchase of a painting. The show and sale will continue Sunday, April 19 from noon to 4 p.m. with free admission.
