2020 Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival Announcement


Dear Finger Lakes Plein Air Friends and Patrons:

For eight years, we have had the privilege of hosting the Annual Finger Lakes Plein Air Competition and Festival in Canandaigua, NY.  Talented artists, esteemed judges, sponsors, donors, host families and volunteers, like you have been indispensable to our journey and we are grateful beyond words for your participation! Your support truly made the festival possible!

While we have come a long way from our modest beginnings,  we continue to face many challenges in our pursuit of making a premier outdoor painting festival that benefits not only our community, but the artists as well.  To overcome these challenges, this year the committee has decided to suspend operation of the June 2020 festival in effort to reorganize on a more sustainable basis.  We are looking at many changes including the format of event, venue(s), and the formation of a new steering committee.  As we work towards this goal, we hope to receive your continued support so that we may come back in June 2021 stronger than ever.

We welcome any suggestions or questions you might have.  If you have interest to be part of a new FLPA Steering Committee or can contribute as a volunteer your expertise in some way please contact us.

In the meantime, we offer our most sincere thanks for your efforts on our behalf of Finger Lakes Plein Air.  We feel that the festival committee has accomplished its many ambitious goals and hope you are as proud as we are of our many successes!

Warmest Regards,
Finger Lakes Plein Air Committee
