Plein Air Arts Festival

Join us for an unforgettable celebration of art and nature at the Saranac Lake Plein Air Arts Festival! Set amidst the stunning landscapes of Saranac Lake, New York, this one-of-a-kind event brings together talented artists from across the region to capture the beauty of the Adirondacks en plein air, or "in the open air." This August, immerse yourself in the creative process as you witness the transformation of blank canvases into breathtaking masterpieces.

Plein-air painting is a unique art form that allows artists to capture the essence of a scene directly from nature, infusing their work with a sense of authenticity and immediacy. At the Saranac Lake Plein Air Arts Festival, you'll have the rare opportunity to observe these gifted artists in action. Stroll through the picturesque streets, watch as their brushes dance across canvases, and experience the magic as their visions come to life. Engage with the artists, ask them about their techniques, and gain a deeper understanding of their creative process. Attend fascinating artist demonstrations, where you'll witness firsthand the various methods and approaches employed by these skilled painters. And don't forget to explore the vibrant local art scene, with galleries and exhibitions showcasing the works of talented artists inspired by the Adirondacks. Mark your calendars and join us at the Saranac Lake Plein Air Arts Festival, where art and nature come together in perfect harmony.
