Plein Air Paint Out – Tarrytown
October 9 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Village of Tarrytown is holding its first Plein Air Paint Out event at Pierson Park on the Hudson, Saturday, October 9, starting at 9 am. Paintings done that day will be offered to the public at an Auction starting at 4 pm in the Pavilion in the Park. This is your chance to own a beautiful original piece of art – and meet the artist in the process!
Artists working in paint media or watercolor will be located around Pierson Park creating the art works which will be auctioned later in the day. Painting in plein air, in the open air, has long been a treasured artistic tradition. Visitors to the Park on Saturday will be able to watch as these local masterpieces are being created.
This riverside location, Pierson Park, offers many wonderful opportunities for painters.
The stunning new Tappan Zee Bridge, nearby marinas, the Hudson River itself with its boat traffic, all in the height of autumn colors, provide ample subject matter for painters.
The Village of Tarrytown itself is the very epicenter of Fall in the Hudson Valley with its Old Dutch Church, the Headless Horseman tradition; Kykuit, the Rockefeller family home and the Union Church of Pocantico Hills with its Chagall and Matisse.
To attract artists to this event, art organizations in Westchester and Rockland have been contacted so they can distribute the information about the event to their members and affiliates.
