Celebrate Easels in Frederick 2015

June 15-20, 2015

Artist registration is now closed and juried artists will be announced March 1st.

In just 5 short years we've become a nationally recognized plein-air event!

Easels of Frederick began in 2010 with a mission to promote the rich history of Frederick City and the small towns and rural beauty of Frederick County. Begun and managed by an Easels in Frederick committee of dedicated volunteers, the annual weeklong event attracts artists and art appreciators from Frederick, throughout the county, and across the country.

Easels in Frederick is foremost an artist event—our focus is on the juried artists and their artwork. Artists, donors, and patrons agree this is one of the most welcoming, well-organized, and professionally run plein-air events they've attended. In 2014 we welcomed a juried Canadian watercolorist and became an international event.
