Ticonderoga by Drayton Jones, promotional piece winner of 2022 Harvest Plein Air.

10th Annual Adirondack Harvest Plein Air Festival

September 19 through 23, 2023

The Adirondack Harvest Plein Air Festival celebrates the autumn beauty of Lake George and the historic town and fort at Ticonderoga, NY. Since its inception in 2013, the festival has drawn the attention of artists throughout the region and its reputation has grown. Ti Arts has been pleased to host this annual event.

The gathering of artists is held in late September, when the trees are at or near their height of color, enhancing the beauty of the scenes that the artists paint. They paint outdoor “plein air” scenes. On the final day, five of their creations are hung at Ti Arts’ Downtown Gallery for a show that usually lasts until the end of October.

Details including schedule of events HERE.
