Mountain Air Painters’ Plein Air Season Begins

Mountain Air Painting of the AlbedorMountain Air Painters have announced the beginning of their 2016 plein air season. Each year the group paints together outdoors from May through October, building a list of locations they’d like to paint. Mountain Air Paitners celebrated the end of the 2015 season with a show of their works at 5 Corners Café in Old Forge.

Mountain Air Painters are watercolor, acrylic, oil and pastel painters and photographers who get together weekly. The group includes members of all experience levels.

“We paint for a couple of hours and then display our work to give each other suggestions and ideas. It’s also a time for sharing ideas about new products, techniques, supplies and inspiration,” said Jeanne Whyte, an Inlet architect who paints watercolors.

This year’s locations include Van Auken’s and the Adirondack Scenic Railroad Station; Penwood, the Burstein home on South Shore Road; Camp Russell on White Lake;  The Woods Inn in Inlet; the Forestport Diner and the Village of Forestport; Big Woodhull Creek Camp Gallery in Old Forge; the Moose River Road; Lyonsdale, the Wheeler Pond home of Betty and Joe Rintrona; Ledgedale on 4th Lake; McCauley Mountain; Old Forge Hardware;  Singing Waters Campground; Palmer Point in Inlet; Cary Pond; Green Bridge on the Moose River, and more.

The Old Forge arts center View sponsors and hosts Mountain Air Painters when the weather makes it difficult to work outdoors.
