This eighth annual juried exhibition and art competition is sponsored by the Allegany Arts Council, a non-profit organization established in 1975 to support and grow the arts in our community. Western Maryland is the ideal setting for a plein air event! Allegany and Garrett County are filled with magnificent mountain vistas, pristine state forests and parks, historic architecture, an abundance of small-town charm and a variety of other visual attractions, such as the C&O Canal, the Casselman Bridge, the Potomac River, numerous streams and hiking paths, a variety of industrial settings, and the steam engine of the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad. The exhibition takes place at the Arts Council’s first class exhibition space, the Saville Gallery. Only thirty artists will be invited to participate, and over $11,000 in prize money will be awarded.
