Art by The Lake


Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown presents its seventeenth annual Art by the Lake celebrating artists who are inspired by the region and its beauty. The event takes place on the museum’s expansive lakefront lawn. A wide range of art will be available for visitors to see and purchase including watercolors, acrylics, oils, photographs, prints, ink drawings, sculptures, and more.

Art by the Lake is a juried art competition featuring several artists from the region. Six cash prizes will be awarded as well as two additional prizes sponsored by Golden Artist Colors.

Admission to the museum includes the event. Ages 19 and under are FREE. Admission is always FREE for members as well as active military and retired career military personnel. FREE museum admission for those receiving SNAP benefits—up to 4 people (see website for details). Discounted two-way tickets are available if you’d also like to visit The Farmers’ Museum across the street.

Proceeds from Art by the Lake benefit Fenimore Art Museum’s education programs.
