Plein Air sur les Rochers

10 AM - 3 PM  

September 22, 2018



Our final plein air festival of 2018 : Plein Air sur les Rochers

Our final outdoor community art event of 2018 is Plein Aire sur les Rochers (Plein Aire on the Rocks).  The Sullivan County hamlet of Barryville offers gorgeous rock formations, as well as many other paintable views.  These amazing vistas are visible from the DEC Public Access point under the Barryville/Shohola Bridge, on the Bridge, Minisink Battleground, at other areas with public access, and at participating private residences throughout the hamlet. 

Our mission is to capture scenes of the first day of Autumn, 2018.  As usual, the BAAA will have art supplies and facilitators for beginners, and experienced artists are welcome to bring their own set-up.  Lunch is also included. 

Finished projects will be on display at a Plein Aire sur les Rochers reception, our final Plein Air event of 2018, at the Minisink Battlegrounds on September 29, 2018, from 1 - 3 PM.  We're planning that program now.

This project is made possible in part with funding from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the NYS Council on the Arts and administered by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance.

Plein Air on the Rocks Reception

September 29, 2018  1 - 3 PM



Our Plein Air on the Rocks Reception, at the Minisink Battleground Park, will display the art created at our On the Rocks community painting party.  But, more importantly, this event celebrates diversity and the contributions of new arrivals. 

BAAA is partnering with the Sullivan County Human Rights Commission to bring you a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Besides the breath-taking views of the Battlegrounds, we're planning a brief presentation on the local history, and a guided tour of the trails.  

Sentinel Rock, pictured above, is probably the most historically significant at the Battleground.  Only about a dozen of the 45 men who made a "last stand" there escaped the hill.

About 5,000 African Americans fought with the Continental Army or militias during the Revolutionary War.  The service of several military experts has become a source of pride among their ethnic groups: Marquis de Layayette of France; Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben and John de Kalb of Germany; and Thaddeus Kosciuszko of Poland.

The Revolution started the pattern of granting conscientious objector status to pacifist religious groups.  Offering citizenship for service was also established as a principal, as enemy troops switched sides, and Europeans came to join the Contintental forces.

This project is made possible in part with funding from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the NYS Council on the Arts and administered by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance.

Artists are welcome to bring supplies and create, or just enjoy the ambience.  It's 1 - 3 PM at the Pavillion at the Minisink Battleground Park, Minisink Ford, NY.
