Plein Air Paint Out at Homewood

Forty-five artists set up their easels in various locations across the Homewood campus on Saturday, giving the community a chance to see the creative process in action.

The Plein Air Paint Out was staged to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Homewood Art Workshops, which recently changed its name to the Center for Visual Arts—a new moniker reflecting just how much the program has grown in the past four decades, thanks to ever-increasing student demand.

Beautiful weather provided a great blank canvas for artists, including undergrads and alumni, to capture moments in time in and around campus at places like the Wyman Park Dell, the Beach, the sculpture garden at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Keyser Quad, the President's Garden, and the Bufano Sculpture Garden. The pieces were auctioned off at a cocktail reception Saturday night, with 30 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Center for Visual Arts.
