Registration is open! July 15-Sept 2
One of the special highlights of our annual Paint the Town Labor Day Show is our Plein Air Competition. "Plein air" means making art from life, and it generally happens outdoors. Costumed models will also be present from 10-1 at Flynn Park and MOB Vintage for the competition.
During our competition, artists have from 7:00am - 3:00pm to complete one (1) two-dimensional work of art within the boundaries of Kensington, Maryland, and turn it in for judging. Prizes will be awarded during a reception that evening at 6 pm in youth and adult categories.
Judge: MAA is honored to present Professor Sumita Kim as the judge for the Plein Air competition for 2023. You can read about Professor Kim here.
Artwork may be priced for sale and left on display at the Kensington Armory through Monday's exhibition.
This activity is open to members, non-members and children.
Registration: Register on this page in advance, or in person at the Kensington Armory on September 2.
Cost: The competition is free for MAA members in good standing and for children. Non-member adults pay $10 per person.
