Tim Fortune of Saranac Lake is exhibiting his large scale, transparent style, watercolor paintings at View through August 3rd.
Cory Card, View’s Exhibition Manager, prepared the Vandervort and Foley Galleries for the large scale watercolor paintings that can be as tall as seven feet.
“Tim Fortune captures small moments on a grand scale with a focus on the effects of water” says Card. “In his painting one can see the play of light as it reflects and refracts off water, a dewdrop as it collects on the surface of a flower, or a milkweed pod as it slowly loses its seeds.”
Several of Mr. Fortune’s works have been shown at numerous galleries both nationally and internationally. Several of his pieces are included in corporate collections. His works have been exhibited in the American Embassy in Guatemala as part of the Art in Embassies Program of the U. S. Department of State. He has won numerous awards including the prestigious Annual Exhibition of Contemporary American Painting at the Society of the Four Arts, Palm Beach. Fortune’s work is also represented in the permanent collection of the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, New York.
