Paint Snow Hill This Weekend

SNOW HILL — For the 12th year, Snow Hill will be hosting plein air artists this weekend.

Seventy artists will be participating in the “paint out.” Ann Coates, organizer of the event, announced 20 registered artists featured in the recently published “100 Plein Painters of the Mid-Atlantic” will be in town. Gary Pendleton, one of the participating artists, wrote and published the book to highlight the talented artists who live in our 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. 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,” Coates said.

On Saturday, April 18 there will be a “Wet Paint” Show & Sale Preview sponsored by Snow  Hill’s Arts on the River Arts & Entertainment District from 6 to 8 at the Old Firehouse on Green Street. This “sneak peek” allows people to get the  first look and first 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-4 p.m. with free admission.
