Keeseville Plein Air Festival

July 9, 2019 @ 8:00 am - July 14, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

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.
