An artist reception will be held Saturday August 25th from 4 to 7 pm with an informal talk at 6 pm. The exhibition pulls together artworks in many sizes and mediums inspired by the Blue Mountain Lake area over a span of 24 years.

The majority of the pieces were created in recent years while she was artist-in-residence during five summers at the Adirondack Museum, as the Adirondack Experience was then called. The 34 paintings are of Blue Mountain Lake, Lake Durant and Buttermilk Falls. The newest painting in the show is “View from Castle Rock,” based on a smaller work that was painted from the ledge in July.

Saratoga Springs artist Anne Diggory has shown her work in over 35 solo exhibitions and 75 group shows. Her hybrid works combining photography and painting were the focus of two recent solo exhibits – in New York City at the Blue Mountain Gallery and at The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls. That work was featured in the Adirondack Explorer, Saratoga Living and the March 2015 photography issue of Adirondack Life. Major commissions include an Adirondack scene for the new Upstate Cancer Center in Syracuse, NY, and several large murals for the Adirondack Trust Company in Saratoga Springs, NY.

Anne Diggory is a regular contributor to the Adirondack Almanack.

There is an online catalogue of the exhibit here.

    For those looking for information about the hike up Castle Rock where I am pictured painting, the Adirondack Explorer just published a story by Leigh Hornbek with a good map.
