Paint Dover!

Paint Dover! is a plein air painting event and art competition in downtown Dover, Delaware, with three days of painting options, culminating in an artwork exhibition, competition, and sales to the public.

This year, Paint Dover! is scheduled for October 5-7, 2022 and registration is open! Sign up before September 1st for a discounted price: tinyurl.com/PaintDover2022

Participating Paint Dover! artists from around the region take to the streets, parks, sidewalks and outdoor cafes to participate in this annual event in the cooler fall season. Inspired by downtown Dover’s architectural landscape, historic commercial buildings, gardens and scenery, artists quickly capture changing light and shadows, and the “spirit” of downtown Dover. The community is invited to watch artists paint outdoors throughout the three days, attend the sidewalk exhibition, and purchase artwork.  Over $1,000 in awards are presented!  An extended exhibition takes place virtually and in downtown shops.

The 2020 virtual exhibit may also be viewed.  CLICK HERE.
