The annual plein air festival at Olana includes paint-out, “meet the artists” reception, exhibition, award ceremony, and live auction. Visitors may walk the property's five miles of historic carriage drives, and converse with artists as they capture the numerous spectacular vistas at Olana. Participating artists, selected through jury, will paint on location throughout the 250-acre artist-designed landscape during this event. The festival culminates on Saturday, October 18 with an afternoon cocktail reception and exhibition at 4pm, and live auction of wet canvases at 5pm. Fee for the cocktail reception is $20/person. Reservations appreciated.
