For the fifth year in a row, Tupper Arts is excited to partner with ADKAction and welcome plein air artists back to the Tupper Lake region to paint the beautiful vistas that our town has to offer. The festival takes place over the course of four days, during which painters will be able to venture through the town and the surrounding woods, and will conclude with a gallery and sale at the Tupper Arts Center.

Some of the many scenic opportunities awaiting artistic interpretation include the winding Raquette River, with the Ox Bow and its many marshes, Bog River Falls at the headwaters of beautiful Tupper Lake, the mountains, lakes, and ponds surrounding the town, and local landmarks like the Beth Joseph Synagogue, the Wild Center, and Oval Wood Dish factory.
