The Village of Fairport is a unique, historic but hip (hipstoric?) community whose “Four Corners” occur at the intersection of Main Street and the Erie Canal. The combination of the canal, the railroad, and the historic Rochester, Syracuse & Eastern Railway trolley created a vibrant village hub that is home to a variety of delightful painting subjects. The Erie Canal and its famous lift bridge, trains and boats, Potter Memorial, a handful of pioneer cemeteries, the 1800s homes on the south side of town, the industrial complex at the Cannery on the north side of town, dedicated wetlands, the canal towpath, historic buildings and churches, public art sculptures, wildlife — all of this awaits you as you arrive with your canvas, brushes, easel, and paint.

Registration will take place at 8:30 am. After a morning of painting, you will display your work for exhibition and sale at Faircraft Brauhaus. Prizes will be awarded.
