Description

AdkAction's 3rd Annual Keeseville Plein Air Festival is an event designed to share the beauty of Keeseville with artists far and wide while aiding in community revitalization efforts. It is a great opportunity for artists to experience the wonder of Keeseville’s historic architecture, the famous AuSable Chasm, and the breathtaking agricultural community. The event will take place July 9th- 14th, with headquarters at the beautiful 1719 Block Gallery in Downtown Keeseville.

There will be 3 days of outdoor painting, visits to local farms, breweries, and wineries. Art collectors and community members are invited to attend the Wine and Cheese Preview Party starting at 6:00 PM on Friday, July 12th and to the Art Show and Sale on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am - 4 pm to view and buy art created during the festival.
