Welcome to the 10th Annual Mountain Maryland Plein Air!


September 24 – 29, 2018

Now in its 10th year, one of Western Maryland’s favorite arts events – Mountain Maryland Plein Air – is a five-day celebration of the scenic landscapes of “the Mountain Side of Maryland,” world-renowned painters, and special events from September 24 – 29, 2018. The Allegany Arts Council invites you along to be inspired and experience master painters capturing the picturesque beauty of our area’s small towns nestled into the Appalachian Mountains. The festival takes place during the peak fall season and is supported by a large group of enthusiastic staff and volunteers.
