Painting at Piseco

October 23, 2012 - Mohawk Currents

The New York Plein Air Painters organization held its first Plein Air Painting Retreat Sept 28-30th. This three-day retreat took place at the 600-acre Irondequoit Inn overlooking Piseco Lake in Piseco, Hamilton County.

I organized this event to bring members from the regional chapters throughout the state together to renew and begin friendships and paint in an unstructured, non-competitive painting environment.

Artists enjoyed socializing, networking, relaxing and informal peer critiques. Evenings were spent relaxing around a cozy fireplace in the Inn's library.

Members came from the Thousand Islands, Catskills, Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley, Adirondacks and Central Leatherstocking regions and included Vice Chairman Jamie Grossman, Former Chairman Carol Douglas and Advisory Board Member Daisy DePuthod.
