  Plein Air Adventures!

BAAA works hard to celebrate a tradition begun by the first Neanderthal who drew on a rock outside his cave: painting "en plein air".  Today, it’s so popular it’s been referred to as "the new golf".

This year we’re planning several events, on both sides of the Delaware River, including private homes, public libraries, private gardens, historic inns, cityscapes, landscapes, rivers, brooks, and waterfalls. As details become available, we'll provide them below.

So, whether you are an art lover, an aspiring artist, or an accomplished master, revisit this page often.  Or send us an e-mail to get on our plein air mailing list. 

And if we can help your group make a Plein Air come to life, please let us know. 

 





WOODEN IT BE NICE!

Wouldn’t it be nice if a local businessman provided space for a free outdoor event where artists and art lovers could gather for a community painting party?

Well that's exactly what happened.  A group of local artists had a pop-up community painting party on the lawn next to the Corner Piazza Restaurant in Eldred, NY, on June 4.  

The completed work has been installed on the railings of the Corner Store in Eldred, NY, and will be there for your viewing pleasure until August 15.  To see some of the creations or for more information CLICK HERE

Plein Air on the Delaware

An outdoor community event for artists and art lovers

Saturday, July30th, 10am-3pm | Rain Date: Saturday, August 6th, 10am-3pm

Plein Air on the Delaware is an outdoor community event for artists, art lovers, poets, and everyone else who wants to join in the fun. Beginners as well as master artists are invited to join. Plein Air on the Delaware gives artists and art lovers a chance to celebrate the historic buildings, parks, streetscapes, and gardens in and around Port Jervis, NY.

Maps will be provided for artists showing several locations along the Delaware River in and around Port Jervis, NY such as the walkway along the Delaware River to West End Beach, Riverside Park, Elks Brox Park and the Hawks Nest, to name a few. The artwork created that day will be on display at a free reception at the Upfront Gallery in Port Jervis, NY on August 13, from 1 - 4 PM. 

We'll meet at the Creamery (5 Water Street in Port Jervis) right next to the River Walkway.  Artists may choose to travel to Hawk's Nest, Elks Brox campground, or the Park along the River behind the Railroad Tracks.

All participants will be provided bagels and pastries in the morning, courtesy of Carmine's Bakery, pizza for lunch, and ice cream from The Creamery.

Plein Air on the Delaware welcomes artists, art lovers, poets, and everyone else to participate in a day of fun. This is a FREE event but registration is required. To register CLICK HERE

This event is being coordinated by Susan Miiller.
