Event description
Register to paint Keeseville’s historic architecture, rolling hills, charming farms, waterfalls, chasms, and lakeshores in July, 2021.

About this event

AdkAction’s annual Keeseville Plein Air Festival started in 2017 and has helped community members and visitors alike see the place anew, as interpreted by talented artists. In 2021, the event is being moved outdoors and expanding to include performance and participatory art events as well. The festival is now called, "Keeseville Community Arts Festival."

We are proud to open registration for our COVID-19 safe event which will take place July 20-25th with three days of painting and two days of showing and sales. Plein Air artists are encouraged to register early, as registrations tend to sell out quickly.

Come paint Keeseville’s historic architecture, rolling hills, charming farms, waterfalls, chasms, and lakeshores. You will be able to enjoy food, beer, and wine from local farms, and craft beverage makers, meet other artists, and come to know a charming lakeside community at the foothills of the Adirondack mountains.
