View Arts Center in Old Forge is set to host an opening reception for its newest exhibition, All Creatures Great and Small: Three Masters Three Mediums, on Friday November 30th from 5 to 7 pm. The exhibition features Allen Blagden, Al Jordan, and Larry Master.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments and food will be served, including a Pad Thai vegetable and chicken station with Great Pines’ chef David Haick. There will also be live wood carving in the courtyard by John Fillman of The Beaver Lodge.
Often compared to Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth, Allen Blagden is a distinguished American contemporary realist, renowned as a painter of birds, animals, people, and the landscapes of his Connecticut home, the Adirondacks and Maine.
Al Jordan is a masterful sculptor and Master Falconer renowned for creating all orders of birds in his lifelike sculptures. Hawks, owls, shorebirds, and songbirds have all been subjects of his highly sought after pieces.
Larry Master is a conservation biologist, a zoologist, and a conservation photographer who has been photographing wildlife and natural history subjects for more than sixty years. Larry spent twenty years with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and six years with NatureServe, mostly as their Chief Zoologist.
Gallery hours are Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. To learn more about View programming, visit their website or call (315) 369-6411.
