Paint the Town! Adirondack Plein Air Festival

August 15 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm

On Thursday Aug 15 artists are asked to “paint the town” – paint the beautiful locations in the village of Saranac Lake: the Riverwalk, Lake Flower, Baker Mountain, gardens, historic buildings – whatever catches their attention. The donation of a small painting for the “Paint the Town” Silent Auction is requested and the auction will open at the Adirondack Artists Guild Gallery, 52 Main St., at 5 pm. Aug 15 is also one of the “3rd Thursday ArtWalks”, so from 5 – 7:30 there will be another 60-70 artists set up on the downtown sidewalks to display and sell their creative products.

Special Event: Plein Air Magazine publisher Eric Rhoads will be at the Hotel Saranac at 8 pm to announce the winner of the Nocturne Contest (paintings done after sundown) and will give a brief talk of the state of plein air painting in the world today! Come find out about this blockbuster trend in
