New York Plein Air Painters was founded more than 10 years ago to foster communication between plein air artists throughout New York State in order to paint together outside on location and share ideas. We have several hundred members throughout the entire state, and even some from nearby states. Our members include both professionals and amateurs who share a love of outdoor painting. Some Regions of the state have very active painting groups, which we call Chapters. Other Regions are slowly building their membership rolls as new members join. We welcome your participation in our large organization.
NYPAP is run by a Chairman and Advisory Board. Patricia McDermond is the current Chairman, with Jamie Grossman, Daisy DePuthod, Noel Darvie, and Jane Rosenberg serving on the Board. They continue to promote, strengthen and grow the plein air painting community of NYPAP. The primary purpose of the NYPAP website is to provide a referral resource for members who want to locate other members within their region and also to provide contact information for artists interested in becoming members. We welcome you to our NYPAP website and invite you to share your ideas with us for the future of NYPAP. Please see the bottom of our Membership Information page to join NYPAP.
