5th Annual Plein Air Festival at Billsboro Winery

One of the many facets of wine is the art connection. There are many opinions about wine including those who believe its production is a science while others believe creating wine is an art. Interesting points can be made in either case. However, another art connection can be found at wineries that promote artists by displaying local artists’ creative endeavors. Going one step farther are wineries who give artists the opportunity to create at  their wineries. A good example is the Billsboro Winery Plein Air Festival in August.

From August 10–12, Billsboro Winery in the Finger Lakes will host the 2012 Plein Air Festival to benefit an art center.

On Friday, August 10, visitors will be able to see artists creating works of art at various locations in the Finger Lakes from 7:00am to 7:00pm.

On Saturday, August 11, Plein Air paint will continue from 7:00am ‘til 11:00am. A Paint Off Competition takes place at Rose Hill Mansion and the day concludes with a juried competition and gallery reception with a silent auction.

On Sunday, the last day of the festival, visitors can enjoy a public exhibition and art sale.

Tickets for the Billsboro Winery 5th Annual Plein Air Festival are available online. Proceeds of this event are to benefit The Smith Center for the Arts.
