Creating Landscapes In The Landscape

Oct 16, 2014

Creating Landscapes in the Landscape, the Third Annual Plein Air Painting event hosted in collaboration by The Olana Partnership and the Columbia County Council on the Arts will take place at the Olana State Historic Site Thursday, October 16th through Saturday, October 18th.

This event allows visitors to interact with thirty contemporary painters working in the field and throughout the property, while they capture elements of Frederic Edwin Church’s spectacular 250-acre artist-designed landscape. The event culminates on Saturday afternoon, October 18th from 4-6 pm at the Wagon House Education Center with a “Meet the Artists” reception, exhibition of works painted during the event, and live auction.

Here to tell us more are Valerie Balint, Olana’s Associate Curator, Plein Air committee member and Maria Kolodziej-Zincio, Board member of the Columbia County Council on the Arts.
