Wooden Boat Show, Art Festival coming to Lakeside

A collaborative effort blending the craftsmanship of the Lakeside Wooden Boat Society and the artistic expression of the Plein Air Art Festival will create one of Lakeside’s most unique weekends of the Chautauqua season from July 20-22.
This three-day event begins on Friday when plein air artists arrive at Lakeside to paint outdoor landscapes. The term “en plein air” means painting “in the open air.” The festival will host more than 30 plein air artists from across the Midwest. Guests are invited to watch them paint.
There will be opportunities to purchase artwork with the addition of the Open Air Gallery, located on the pedestrian walkway of Walnut Avenue, between Second and Third Streets in Lakeside. The Open Air Gallery will be open preceding the 8:15 p.m. Hoover Auditorium performance from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
