Paint the Point! Plein-Air Painting at Brookwood Point

Calling all artists!

Enjoy a summer weekend painting “en plein air” in the picturesque setting of historic Brookwood Point on Otsego Lake.

Paint the Point! is your opportunity to be inspired by the beautiful gardens and views of the Brookwood Point Conservation Area in company with other artists. Brookwood Point in August features a variety of colorful blooms in the historic Italianate garden, a freshwater stream running through dense woodlands, a natural shoreline along the west side of Otsego Lake and views of the surrounding hills. The weekend will offer inspiration, enjoyment, and learning, with optional artists’ tips, professional critiques, and a short tour of Brookwood Point’s many notable features. Registered artists are invited to display and sell selected pieces in the gallery of the Cooperstown Art Association. Members of the public will be able to visit the property during the event and observe art in the making. Otsego Land Trust will provide free parking, continental breakfast and box lunches on both days. There will be a tent on site for relief from hot sun or inclement weather. Registrants can also take advantage of a discount on canoe and kayak rentals, so you can end your weekend relaxing on the calm surface of “Glimmerglass.”
