Come for the day and watch Plein Air artists hard at work as the ‘paint out’ returns to the charming town of Oxford. Bring the family and enjoy special events that showcase the community.
Competition artists are invited to Paint Oxford, and visitors to observe artists painting throughout the day. You definitely don’t want to miss this! Plein Air Easton competition artists will descend on Oxford at dawn for its fifth annual Paint Oxford Day. Taking place on Sunday, July 12th, local businesses will offer specials and the day will conclude with live music, a free reception, exhibition, and sale at the Oxford Community Center from 5 to 6:30 pm. $1,000 Artists’ Choice prize will be awarded, as will a first-ever $250 WaterWays award sponsored by Attraction Magazine and the Oxford Museum.
Popes Tavern will be serving Sunday Brunch from 11 am -2 pm. Be sure to make your reservations! If you are thirsty later on in the day, stop by the Treasure Chest from 10 am to 4 pm; free lemonade will be available from the stand out front. You are sure to find a variety of unique gifts and artwork inside, as well.
Be sure to take a stroll down Tilghman Street to the Scottish Highland Ice Creamery, which will be open from noon until 8:30 pm. They will feature a special flavor for the Plein Air event.
Toward the day’s end, head on over to the Oxford Community Center, where you will hear local Oxford musicians jamming to some of their favorite tunes.. Then go inside to see the artists’ completed, framed accomplishments. Paintings may be on display as early as noon for viewing and purchase, but the full Artist Exhibition (accompanied by nibbles and beverages) will be there from 5 to 6:30 pm. Capping off activities at that venue, the President of the Oxford Community Center will announce and present the coveted Artists’ Choice award around 6:15 pm.
