FULTON, NY – CNY Arts Center is inviting artists from around the region to participate in its first Plein Air Paint Out scheduled for July 11-13 at Arts in the Heart Gallery at 47 S. First St. The Paint Out will conclude with a cocktail party and live auction in the three-day event.
What’s a Plein Air Paint Out?
Artists will register at the gallery and spend the weekend painting at scenic locations around the region. On the second day, July 12, paintings are delivered to the gallery for a preview cocktail party to be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. along with live entertainment and beverages.
On the third day, July 13, a live art auction will be held at 5 p.m. in the former Adecco office at 104 Cayuga St. The former office will be transformed into an exhibit of the art donated for the fundraising event.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to bring visitors to our region, to enjoy our scenic beauty and create unique paintings,” said Bonnie McClellan, event organizer and gallery coordinator. “The pieces of art created will be specific to our region and capture the true beauty we know exists, as seen through the eyes of an artist.”
Artists can register by calling McClellan at 598-ARTS – 598-2787. Tickets for the cocktail party will be available at the door for $5 members and $10 non members.
