“Art on the Avenue” is a block party with a juried exhibition of plein air paintings artists have done around town that day. Under the sunset backdrop of the State House dome, participants enjoy live music, visiting vendors, and Galway Bay’s beer garden while taking in the latest artists’ renderings of Annapolis (the paint still wet on the canvases) and voting for their favorites. Prizes are awarded at the end of the evening. It’s a great way for the community to interact with the artists they’ve been seeing sketch and paint around town all week.
Beginning at 10am: Artists check-in at Circle Gallery (artists may also get canvases stamped the night before)
5:30pm – 8pm: block party on Maryland Avenue
