Art In The Streets

Take in downtown Frederick through the eyes of talented, local artists as they practice plein air painting along Market Street on Saturday, September 12th, 1 – 5 PM during Art In The Streets coordinated in partnership with The Frederick Art Club!


Janet Arsenault
Watch Janet paint at 123 N. Market Street

Janet is a signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society.

A retired FCPS teacher and longtime resident of Frederick, Janet enjoys painting with watercolor and teaching watercolor painting part time at the Delaplaine Art Center.

Sheryl Massaro
Watch Sheryl paint at 15 N. Market Street

Sheryl is an oil painter, poet, and photographer based in historic Frederick, MD, where she is active in several arts organizations. Sheryl’s oils and photography have been exhibited in many galleries and museums nationally, and are in several private collections. Her work, though often based on the recognizable, shares a deeper, “off to the side” look at life than the purely representational. In 2018, she became a Resident Artist at Frederick’s Griffin Art Center, where she works from her Art & Pen Studio. Sheryl’s visual art is represented by DISTRICT Arts, 15 N. Market Street, Frederick, MD.

Matthew Mitchell
Watch Matthew paint at 203 N. Market Street
Matthew has been a Frederick local since 2012.  He enjoys the challenge of plein air painting, and loves making large interesting paintings in studio.

Ann Schaefer
Watch Ann paint at 242 N. Market Street
Ann has been showing her art in downtown Frederick’s Gallery 322 for 11 years. Primarily an outdoor painter, she finds inspiration in the cityscapes and landscapes of Maryland. She participates in organized plein air events and group exhibits, where she often wins awards.

Tom Semmes
Watch Tom paint at 217 N. Market Street
Tom began painting in his teens, inspired by the forests and fields of his childhood Potomac, MD, home, and by the works of impressionist and post-impressionist artists on view in local museums. His art combines the study of the observable world, and the memory and feelings of places that have inspired him. He paints in oil with a rich application of color and expressive brush strokes. As one collector said, his work can best be described as “like (Edward) Hopper but happy!”

Visitors are reminded to enjoy the artwork safely by practicing social distancing, and by wearing a mask when social distancing is not possible!
