Plein Air Easton is the largest and most prestigious juried plein air painting competition in the United States. In its 14th year, it is held in Easton, Maryland each July. Plein air painters produce art from life (as opposed to in the studio). Artists from all over the United States and beyond apply to this competition
Plein Air Easton is at the center of the modern plein air movement. Easton is making history and the work produced here has importance beyond the daily joy of seeing original artwork in your home. We invite you to experience the vibrancy and artistic excellence of Plein Air Easton and to be a part of the history being made here.
