After the recent success of this year’s Plein Air Festival, we are delighted that talented artist Mick McAndrews will be back on Solomons Island on 23rd to the 25th of October. He will be hosting a watercolor workshop for aspiring watercolor painters. The event is organized by Carmen’s Gallery, just a paint splat away from Solomons Victorian Inn. Mick will be staying with us for three nights of restful sleep followed by yummy breakfasts to prepare him for the days ahead.
Both Judith and I are huge fans of the arts and we support all the local events on the Island. If you are interested in next year’s Plein Air Festival or Anne Marie Gardens’ Artsfest then please book Solomons Victorian Inn early. We will likely be fully booked for both events. Our guests commented on how much they enjoyed walking and interacting with the artists as they painted outdoors at beautiful locations throughout the Island. The event is competitive and the artists come in from far and wide and are all of a very high standard. Their work is judged at an end-of-week event and awards given for the best works on display. Maybe next year you could join the juried painters in the “Paint the Town for a Cause” event and see how you compare!
