North River artist Jan Palmer will fill the Widlund Gallery at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek from May 24th to June 25th with a retrospective of some 50 years of paintings in watercolor and pastel.
The early years are represented by Raggedy Ann and Andy illustrations, fairy tales and other stories. Jan has illustrated over 20 books. She has won many awards from national shows in both watercolor and pastel including the prestigious Silver Medal Rosenau Award from the Adirondack National Exhibition of American Watercolors in Old Forge, New York. Her love of portraiture shows in recent paintings of local children.
There will be a reception on Saturday, June 14th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Tannery Pond Community Center followed by a concert by The Saratoga Players. Details are available at www.tpcca.org.
