Keeseville Plein Air Festival this Weekend

You are invited to the first annual Keeseville Plein Air Festival for a special wine and cheese preview party on Saturday, July 15th at 6 pm at the 1719 Block Gallery on Keeseville’s Front Street, and additional gallery space will be open at AARCH.

The arts festival will showcase Keeseville’s mix of natural beauty and historic architecture and attract a wide range of artist and visitors. During 3 days of outdoor painting, artists will have the opportunity to put to canvass the scenic variety of the area. On the first day titled “Paint the River”, artists will be given a tour of AuSable Chasm and directed to various locations and historic bridges along the AuSable River and its falls. Day two called “Paint the Town” will begin with a tour of Keeseville’s architecture by the Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) after which the artists will set up their painting stations throughout the village. “Paint the Farms” is the theme of day three when artists will find scenes of crops growing, animals grazing, and farmhands working fields in the budding farm community surrounding Keeseville.

If you can’t make it for the Preview Party, you can visit 1719 Block Gallery for the art show and sale on Sunday, July 16th from 10 am to 3 pm.

If you would or someone you know would like to participate as an artist, please visit AdkAction.org/art to register. Full-festival passes are $35 for artists, and day-passes are also available for $20.
