You're invited to the 3rd Annual VIC Plein Air Paint-Out plein air paint the vic& Exhibit

We are happy to announce the dates for the 2017 VIC Paint-Out. The Paul Smith's College VIC is a real gem in the Adirondacks. Miles of easily accessible trails wind through old growth forest, along Barnum Brook, Black Pond and Heron Marsh, up to the summit of Jenkins Mountain, through bogs, fens, and past beaver ponds. There are 100's of great painting locations and the VIC hosts painting days during the Adirondack Plein Air Festival in August and the Publisher's Invitational "Adirondack Paint Week" in June every year.

This event will invite artists to paint throughout the VIC and Paul Smith's College property, as well as neighboring Barnum, Mountain, Osgood, and Jones Ponds, Lower St Regis Lake, White Pine Camp and other scenic places nearby.

Artists can paint there beginning Friday Sept 1 (Labor Day weekend) and through Thursday Sept 7. Come paint for a day, a couple of days, or the entire week. Framed paintings will be due Friday Sept 8, with a reception that evening.

Works will remain on exhibit in both galleries at the VIC until September 20, during our beautiful peak fall colors. There will be a 30% commission on sales and artists will be responsible for coming to pick up their work at the close of the exhibit.

* $25 Registration fee waived for artists who applied for the 2017 Adirondack Plein Air Festival and were not selected for participation
