“Les Petits,” an exhibit and sale of small works of art that supports the Finger Lakes Plein Air Competition and Festival, will be part of the Springtime in Cananadaigua event this year.
These works by local artists will be on exhibit from Friday, April 27 through Sunday, April 29 at the Finger Lakes Plein Air & Les Petits booth at Springtime in Canandaigua. Hours and details for Springtime in Canandaigua, held at the Greater Canandaigua Civic Center on North Bloomfield Road, are available at www.springtimeincanandaigua.com.
Festivalgoers can buy tickets for drawings for each “Les Petits” item; tickets are $1 per ticket or 15 for $10. Winners will be announced at 3 p.m. on April 29, the final day of Springtime in Canandaigua.
The exhibit provides an opportunity for local artists and residents to support the Plein Air Festival, which runs from June 5 to 10 at sites in Canandaigua and Naples.
Plein air is a French term for open air painting in which artists set up easels outside to catch the light at various times of day.
During the Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival, local residents have an opportunity to observe artists who come from across the nation and Canada to paint the lake, hills, farm scenes and streetscapes. The resulting works will be exhibited and sold on the final day.
