The East side of Seneca Lake is known for great wines, an exceptional local cuisine and beautiful vistas that accompany each winery. As supporters of the arts, Damiani Wine Cellars, Atwater Estate Vineyards, Leidenfrost Vineyards, Sheldrake on Seneca, and ARTe invite art and wine lovers to the 1st Annual Plein Air Art Festival.
Between 7am and 3pm on July 28th, 2012 the public is welcome to visit each winery location to watch the artists live at work. An opening reception and silent auction will begin at 4:30 at Damiani Wine Cellars in Burdett, NY. The reception runs from 4:30-9 and is open to all ages.
Food from local farmers and food vendors, non-alcoholic beverages and wine tastings from each participating winery will be provided along with live music by the Ageless Jazz Band and an art exhibit of the plein air art produced that day. The silent auction will end at 7pm and will be followed by more live music. The event ends at 9pm. A rain date is scheduled for Sunday, July 29th.
All artists who work in any medium are welcome to apply to participate in the event at http://damianiwinecellars.com/plein-air-call/. Applications will be accepted until July 9th and the event is limited to 30 artists.
