The last weekend of June 2014 the MFA held the Paint Annapolis Plein Air Art Competition.
Paint Annapolis was a four-day juried plein air painting competition held June 23-29, 2014, that brought to Annapolis plein air painters from across the United States. For 12 years it has been a premier event, bringing artists and patrons of the arts together to share in the spirit of the energy and vibrancy of outdoor painting. The event is designed to explore in paint the special colonial architecture, marine atmosphere and overall energy of Maryland’s capital city - home to families, business, colleges, and maritime activities.
Paint Annapolis 2014 was a great success! MFA was able to offer $10,000 in prize money to the artists, but MFA was able to raise almost $3,000 to help us bring to the community current artwork created by living artists.
Colors of Nature had donated a Baker's Dozen to the event. Michael Kotarba was the Honorable Mention Recipient who received the Baker's Dozen of vegan cruelty-free watercolor paint.
Colors of Nature is committed to art and artists within the community. If you belong to an art community, association or society or you are a teacher of art please contact us as we would like to work with you.
Congratulations Michael and MFA!
