All painting surfaces (panels, paper, canvases, etc.) must be blank before being stamped. Painting surfaces may be primed or gessoed in one color. Sketches and underpaintings will not be stamped.
  2. All artwork must be painted en plein air during the week of Paint Annapolis within the designated painting boundaries, without the use of photographs. Artists may paint while under shelter but may not be in a fully enclosed space.
  3. All artwork submitted for exhibition, awards, and/or sales must be framed, wired, and ready to hang. NO EXCEPTIONS. Artwork that is not ready for hanging will not be displayed. Artwork, including mat and frame, may not exceed 32 inches in any direction. If you do not already have a frame, we recommend ordering a standard sized frame ahead of time from Dick Blick, Jerry’s Artarama, or Michaels. For custom frames, look at West Annapolis Fine Artworks and Framing.

  4. Artwork created during Paint Annapolis may be exhibited in the Paint Annapolis online gallery. Artists may upload their work that they have submitted for exhibition in the Pop Up Gallery for the Paint Annapolis online gallery using a link MFA staff will send the week of the event. It is the artist’s responsibility to post their work by June 7 at 12 PM. Do not include the frame in the photo of work you are submitting.

Commission proceeds for all sales support current and future Paint Annapolis events and help MFA achieve our mission to create meaningful connections in the community through art.
