The Camden Public Library and Page Gallery are collaborating to present Camden on Canvas, a plein-air fundraiser scheduled to be held Friday morning through Sunday at noon, July 21-23, in Camden and surrounding communities.

In the library’s third annual event, landscape artists will paint en plein-air (outdoors) at multiple local sites. The weekend culminates with a reception and live auction of one painting from each artist on Sunday, July 23. Artists receive 50 percent of the sale price; the library receives the remaining 50 percent as a donation, according to a news release from Julia Sagaser with the library.

Artists can email submissions to by Friday, Jan. 20, following these guidelines:

• Submit three digital photos of recent plein-air paintings;
• submit images in jpeg format at 72 dpi with the longest dimension being 2,000 pixels;
• include each painting’s dimensions; and
• include a website, gallery link, or Instagram link for further context.

Jurors will select the 2023 artist list by Wednesday, Feb. 1.
