12:00pm - 12:00am

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.  The third-year art event is part of Arts Alive at Five! and is offered in conjunction with monthly First Fridays in downtown Dover. The event will take place, rain or shine.

Starting September 29th, artists from around the region take to the streets, the parks, sidewalks and outdoor cafes to participate. Inspired by downtown Dover’s architectural landscape, historic commercial buildings, gardens and scenery, artists will quickly capture changing light and shadows, and the “spirit” of downtown Dover.

Exhibition and sale of paintings will take place on October’s First Friday, October 1, 2021 from 4:30-7 p.m. and in an extended exhibit both virtually and in downtown shops.

The community is invited to watch artists paint outdoors throughout the three days, attend the sidewalk exhibition, and purchase artwork.  A “People’s Choice” award will also be made, as the community casts their vote for their favorite piece on the night of the exhibition and throughout an extended exhibition virtually and throughout October as artwork is displayed in downtown shops and virtually.
