Plein Air dans le Jardin

We're so grateful to Hestia’s Garden for opening up their private gardens for this Plein Air event.  Designed by Darlene Midlang to nurture body and soul, the perennial, vegetable, and herb gardens are ensconced in eight acres of meadows and woods.  

There is an orchard, and wandering paths that will take the explorer to Buck Brook Creek and the old pond stocked with fish. The planted berms hold primarily native plants and were created using lasagna gardening techniques.  The vegetable garden is a series of circles, suggesting a mandala.  

There are so many beautiful ways to frame the landscapes, you'll be hard pressed to settle on a place to set up.  This event is July 21, 2018, from 9 - 3 o'clock (July 22 Rain Date).  Space is limited to 15 artists. 

As always, we'll have art supplies and facilitators for beginners, and experienced artists are welcome to bring their own set-up. CLICK HERE to check out the Hestia's Garden website, then click the button below to register.  A light lunch is included.

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 dans le Jardin

Our Plein Air dans le Jardin Reception will include the art created at Hestia’s Garden, complimentary refreshments, and an exciting presentation based on the latest research about the mental health benefits of flowers and gardening.  

Research confirms what visitors to hospitals have known for years: there is a proven link between flowers and health—both physical and mental health.  Different colors and aromas prompt different moods and this can make a difference in our homes and businesses, as well as hospitals.

Our featured speaker is Jennifer King, LCSW, from the staff of SUNY Sullivan.  She will make a brief presentation on the power of flowers, “Petunias—Not Prozac!” 

Please join us to celebrate flowers, gardens and plein air art at the Delaware Free Branch of the Western Sullivan Public Library in Callicoon on July 28, 2018, from 1:30 to 3:30 PM.

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 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, 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 a time and place soon to be determined.

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.
