Celebrating art outdoors along Lake Champlain

Artists are invited to take part in this summer's Plein Air Event in the Champlain Valley. "Plein air" began with 19th century French Impressionists who took the act of painting out of the studio and into the world. In July, artists will draw, paint or photograph their favorite Champlain Valley scenes, and the works will be included in an art show and silent auction. The Westport Chamber of Commerce and the Arts Council of the Northern Adirondacks are sponsoring the event. Todd Moe spoke with the Chamber's Dee Carroll.  Go to full article
