Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival – Jill Wagner
June 7, 2016 - June 12, 2016
During the 2016 Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival, we will be hosting artwork by Jill Wagner. Her artwork will be hung in the Canandaigua store and will be for sale during the Festival.
“Fast forward to today, and the festival has become an eminently respected art competition and a popular community event dedicated to promoting our community and enriching our cultural heritage. For those who are new to the event, it celebrates artwork created “en plein air,” meaning literally “in the open air.” This style of painting originated in Europe near the end of the 19th century, when artists left their studios to paint what they saw in the great outdoors! Devotees believe that painting on site, in natural light, produces luminous paintings of unparalleled quality and beauty. The current festival showcases not only Canandaigua’s quaint downtown and Main Street, but local landmarks like the Granger Homestead and Sonnenberg Mansion and Gardens.”
