Each year, the 2nd week of September brings more than 50 fine artists from the Mid-Atlantic and beyond to paint en plein air (French for painting outdoors) on Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. On Saturday evening (9/14), you can see what they've created at a show and sale that is free to the public. Everyone is welcome! Come early; pieces sell quickly! A portion of the artwork sales goes to help the CCA promote the arts on the island.

Plus, Quick Draw Contest, Thursday, September 12 - Open to the Public - Registration fee is $5.
Artists will be painting in and around Robert Reed Park from 1-3 pm. It's a great opportunity to watch how different artists interpret the same scenes. Paintings will be judged at 3 pm and after prizes are awarded, they will be available for sale until 4 pm. Artists who are not registered for the entire Plein Air event are welcome to participate by showing up at 12:30 pm.
