Juried artists came from all over the country to participate in Paint Annapolis 2022. They were selected to display their art in Circle Gallery and the Paint Annapolis Pop-Up Gallery at 4 Church Circle. They worked through the heat, the humidity, and the rain to bring the streets and waterways of Annapolis to life. The awards were selected by juror Valerie Craig, a full-time impressionist painter from Pennsylvania. Congratulations to the award winners! See all of the Juried Artists’ work at Circle Gallery or online here through June 25.
