Paint It! Ellicott City 2016

We're pleased to report that our seventh annual plein air paint-out was a big success. The event was followed by an opening reception on July 11 for the Paint It! Ellicott City exhibit featuring the juried artists's work. The evening included a one-night exhibit of work created during the Open Paint-Out, as well as the presentation of nearly $6,000 in awards to the artists. The top two prizes, the $1,000 Gino Awards named in honor of Ellicott City artist Gino Manelli (1915–2010), were presented to Debra Howard for Steps to Church Street and Alison Leigh Menke for Cooling Down.
