Don't Miss Plein Air Paint Out During SaratogaArtsFest
SARATOGA SPRINGS NY — Crowds gather around local artists as they participate in the Plein Air Paint Out. The phrase plein air is a French expression meaning in the open air. Artists from Albany, Saratoga, Troy, Glens Falls and other surrounding regions set up their easels and blank canvases outside, along the streets of downtown Saratoga Springs, where they prepare for hours of painting. By the light of the afternoon sun, these artists paint in the open air, creating masterpieces before the eyes of admiring onlookers.
Plein Air Paint Out is just one of the many exciting events during the annual SaratogaArtsFest. Many artists, performers and vendors draw in throngs of people with their entertaining performances, events, promotions and exhibitions.
