The brushes have dropped! For Paint Annapolis 2020, we invited artists who could attend to come paint alongside the nineteen juried artists for the entire week. Their work is now hanging at MFA’s Pop Up Gallery at 186 Main Street. Check out the exhibition online right here or in person through October 22nd.

At our award ceremony Friday night, we announced both the juried and public awards, and now here they are for you to see! Click here to watch the reception (we’re working on editing it together with a thank you message from MAPAPA and taking out some of the technical problem so subscribe to us on YouTube to see the polished version when it drops).
