Art is the Theme
Throughout the month in Frederick County, you can enjoy any number of events that are centered around Art. Art is the theme in Frederick in June, although every month, Frederick is for Art-Lovers… of all kinds.
This week, Tuesday through Saturday, June 18th through 22nd, there will be 30 painters located downtown, and in several places throughout the county, painting scenes from our beautiful county, historic scenes, city scenes and glimpses of the natural beauty of our area.
These juried artists are from all over the country, and will take place in a competition for a total of $14,000 in cash prizes. Their paintings will be exhibited and judged at the Grand Exhibition June 21-22. And it will all be for sale!
The Grand Exhibition will be in 2 parts:
- The Private Collectors Preview, Friday June 21, 7 to 9:30 pm, Admission $50.
- The Public Reception, Saturday, June 22, 1 pm to 6 pm, free admission.
