About Us

The Fairport Plein Air Community Paint Out is hosted by the Fairport Public Art Committee. The committee is tasked with overseeing the Fairport Public Art Plan and facilitating public art within the Village of Fairport. The committee also provides programming and art support to the communities of Fairport and Perinton.

Our second annual event takes place on Saturday, September 30, 2023. Registration is now open.

What is a Plein Air?

A “Plein Air” is an “open-air” painting event. Artists will check in at our exhibition venue (to be announced), then spend the morning painting in various beautiful locations within the village. They will then bring their paintings back for display. In the afternoon, we’ll host a ticketed event where attendees can enjoy a glass of wine or soda and preview the Art, followed by a public viewing and sale of the Art, along with a “Best in Show” and “People’s Choice” award.

Please see our Get Inspired! page to glimpse some photos of the area, and to contemplate a plan for what you’d like to paint!
