The Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay (PAPCB) started in April 2014 when Jackie Pfaff-Pratt, Elaine Shortall, Kate Quinn and Diane DuBois Mullaly began painting together on Tuesdays. This group is the “daughter” of the long established Plein Air Painters of the Eastern Shore (PAPES), which was founded in 2004 by Anne Hock and the late Liz Donovan. PAPES still exists but no longer schedules organized paint outs. PAPCB now has over 30 members and organizes a plein air paint out every Tuesday.
