The Howard County Arts Council (HCAC), Howard County Tourism and Mat About You Framing & Gallery have partnered to present this paint-out weekend culminating in an exhibit of 27 juried artists at the Howard County Center for the Arts.

The artists will set up their easels and paint throughout Ellicott City. Clark's Elioak Farm is one of the sites where artists will be set up their easels and paint throughout the weekend.
