We are looking for antique and exotic cars for the artists to capture on canvas. These cars present incredible painting subjects for the artists and make this unique event special for spectators. Bring your car to the Riverwalk Pavilion beginning at 8 a.m. and watch these world renowned artists bring your vehicle to life! There will also be an opportunity to purchase the paintings throughout the morning and after judging at 1 p.m.

Solomons Riverwalk


Join us on the Solomons Riverwalk for a day of fun with our juried painters. You can bring your own supplies and paint alongside them, or you can be a spectator and take in the action.

Spectators spend the morning wandering up and down the Riverwalk to see the progress of the many paintings being created. Artists are required to stay within sight of the Riverwalk, allowing spectators to keep track of their favorites as the day continues.

If you choose to paint alongside the artists, we have awards to present to non-competition artists just like you!
