The Frederic Remington Art Museum will host a public reception for the annual Morristown Plein Air Festival on Saturday, August 5th from 7 to 9 pm. Cost is $5 per person; snacks and a cash bar will be available. At the event, Museum Director Laura Foster will give a gallery talk about Frederic Remington as a plein air painter. The Ogdensburg Youth Garden Club will give tours of the Learning Garden at the Eva Caten Remington Education Center. Festival painters have been invited to set up displays of their paintings for sale and admiration. “Plein air” refers to painting outdoors. During the four day Morristown festival, artists are invited to come into the community to paint the local landscapes. The reception at the Remington Museum is an opportunity for visiting artists to socialize with one another and with the public. This event will be an opportunity for all to see Remington’s work from a plein air point of view, and a chance for these contemporary artists to newly appreciate Remington’s work.” For more information on the festival, visit morristownpubliclibrary.org.
