CAMBRIDGE – On July 8, artists will be seen painting en plein air (outdoors) in Cambridge. These are some of the painters selected for the 2016 Plein Air Easton competition. They will come to Cambridge to capture the scenery that is unique to this the town. The paintings produced in the last two years were breath-taking images of the area and the work this year promises to be equally impressive.

Approximately 35 of the 58 competition painters will arrive early in the morning. The group will enjoy a light breakfast, courtesy of Katie Mae’s Country Shoppe. Then each artist will select a view that he or she will bring to life on a canvas. The public is invited and encouraged to come out and watch these exceptionally talented painters at work.
Cambridge Eateries, thanks to owner/chef Patrick Fanning, will provide lunches for the artists in late morning.

The culmination of the day is the Wet Paint Show and Sale that will take place along High Street, starting at the arts center. All of the paintings created this morning will be offered for sale from noon until 2 p.m.

The artists themselves will select a painting done by one of their peers to receive a cash prize. This Artists’ Choice Award is sponsored by William T. Hunt Insurance, Downtown Frame of Mine, Folger Nolan Fleming Douglas, and Newcomb and Collins.

Wednesday Morning Artists represented by Nancy Snyder, Dorchester Center for the Arts represented by Janette Jones, Cambridge Main Street represented by Tom Hutchinson, and the City of Cambridge represented by Brandon Hesson, have provided the energy and planning to bring this exceptional annual event to Cambridge.
