MMC-TV covered “Paint the Town” Montgomery Art Show & Plein Air event on Labor Day Weekend 2018.
Each year the Montgomery Art Association and the Town of Kensington celebrate local artists by displaying and selling their artwork at The Kensington Armory/Town Hall in Kensington, MD. This year, of course, was no different.
Community members who attended this event had the opportunity to see Kensington’s creativity on full display, whether it be through watercolor, acrylic, oil pastel, mixed media, and sculpture. On Saturday, Sept. 1, local artists even set up easels throughout Kensington to “Paint Kensington.”
The weekend’s best pieces of art won prizes. Here is a list of categories and winners:
The Bertha Clum Award: Jennifer Beaudet ~ “Kensington Station”
