Each year, the 2nd week of September brings more than 50 fine artists from the Mid-Atlantic and beyond to paint "en plein air" (French for painting outdoors) on Chincoteague and Assateague.  On Saturday evening, you can see what they've created at a Show and Sale that is free to the public.  Come early, as the best pieces sell quickly.  A portion of the artwork sold benefits CCA. 6pm-9pm at the United Methodist Church Social Hall. chincoteagueculturalalliance.org
