Scenic Painting Spots
“If you have always had a beautiful spot and thought, ‘Some artist should paint that,’ this is your chance,” says Patricia Rini Rohrer.
45 artists invited to the Finger Lakes Plein Air Competition and Festival will arrive in Canandaigua in June looking for interesting scenes and vistas to paint. Come rain or shine!
We are asking local residents living around Canandaigua Lake to invite our professional artists from across the US and Canada onto their backyards, gardens, fields, docks and beaches, farmland, vineyards, woods, fields, ponds, buildings with character, etc. for the prestigious Finger Lakes Plein Air Competition & Festival. Spots to paint in case of rain such as porches, gazebos, open sided structures are highly appreciated.
Our artists are professional, highly skilled painters and will respect your property leaving nothing behind except a footprint or two and a great work of art. The main dates that the artist would be painting on your property will be during the festival June 5th – 10th, 2018. Each artist can easily be identified by the FLPA lanyard they are required to wear. All artwork sales during the festival must still proceed through and will benefit the OCAC and the Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival.
“Over the last five years, gifted painters have captured so many of the memorable vistas we all know. This year, we again hope to give them access to special places that are more out-of-the way,” said Pat Rini Rohrer.
