Air Adventures

BAAA works hard to celebrate a tradition begun by the first Neanderthal who drew on a rock outside his cave: painting "en plein air".  Today, it’s so popular it’s been referred to as "the new golf".

This year we’re planning on a dozen events, on both sides of the Delaware River, including private homes, public libraries, private gardens, historic inns, cityscapes, landscapes, rivers, brooks, and waterfalls. 

So, whether you are an art lover, an aspiring artist, or an accomplished master, revisit this page often.  Or send us an e-mail to get on our plein air mailing list.  


Reception and Afternoon Tea June 22, 2019 2 - 4 PM Callicoon Branch of the Western Sullivan Public Library

This reception will show off the art created at our May 18 Hestias Garden event. All are invited to attend.

June 29, 2019 10 - 3 PM Plein Air Historic Milford

Plein Air dans la Village is an outdoor community art event for artists and art lovers. On June 29, 2019 from 10 AM – 3 PM, local artists will be painting and drawing on the streets of Milford, PA. First stop will be the Welcome Table, art supplies, and historic map to be collected on the porch of the The Columns Museum of the Pike County Historical Society 608 Broad Street, Milford, Pennsylvania. Then it’s off—on your own or in groups—to find the perfect place to inspire your artwork.

We will have a small "goodie bag" for everyone which will include your ticket to the Pizza After Party at 403 Broad St. restaurant, right next to the Hotel Fauchere. All artists attending will have the opportunity to taste the gourmet pizza for free! (Cash bar.)

The free after party at 403 Broad starts at 3 PM.  Registration is required for this free event. 

Artwork created at this event will be displayed at a July 7 reception at The Craft Show Gallery, 120 East Hartford Street, Milford, PA from 1 - 4 PM, and the exhibit will stay up until July 21.

Tusten Settlement Church Cemetery

Paranormal is the name we give to "experiences that are outside the norm and beyond scientific explanation".  That’s also a great definition for art!

So we’re combing the two for a plein air community painting event at the Tusten Settlement Church Cemetery.  Paranormal specialist Rich Justus will be on hand to document and inform us all on the paranormal activity our drawing and painting stirs up.

For more information or to register, go to WSPLonline or call 845-252-3360.
