Adirondack lakes are featured in Anne Diggory’s art exhibition at the Albany Institute of History and Art, “All in a Day’s Work” which opens with a lecture and reception April 7th at 2 pm.
The show includes six artworks based on a day at Crane Point on Blue Mountain Lake and other groups based on the view from Recluse Island in Lake George, from Partridge Island in Upper Saranac Lake and from her canoe along the Bog River. Several works combine her contemporary view with how the scene was painted in the 19th century.
“Out of Place at Huletts Landing,” links her day spent at Lake George with the portrayal of the same location in the 19th century by David Johnson, Study of Nature, Dresden, Lake George, 1870, which is in the museum’s collection. The research to locate that viewpoint was featured in the Adirondack Almanack HERE.
The exhibition runs from to August 18th. Visit the gallery with Diggory on April 25, from 5 to 6 pm.
The museum is located at 125 Washington Avenue. For more information, visit the Albany Institute website, or Anne Diggory’s website.
