Paint The Point Plein Air


Join us for a very special Plein Air Painting event!

Registered artists will meet at Point Betsie on the morning of June 20th for a private plein air painting event while the lighthouse is closed to the general public. Box lunch will be provided. Drop off your exhibit-ready work to OAC by 5:00 pm to participate in our juried competition, complete with cash prizes for 1st – 3rd place. Public reception and awards will take place at 5:30 pm June 23rd at OAC. Works will be available to the public for purchase – artists receive 60% of the retail price and 40% of proceeds will benefit Point Betsie and the Oliver Art Center. Reserve your spot early to “Paint the Point” as space is limited.
