The 26th annual juried show at the Adirondack Artists Guild opened on Friday, [March 15] with a gala reception. Seventy-four works by sixty-four artists, chosen by juror Laura Desmond of the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, comprise the show.

 “With such a large number of submissions, and limited exhibition space, I knew that many fine works would ultimately be left out of the show, but I proceeded by addition, rather than subtraction, picking pieces that I knew I wanted to include in the exhibit,” said Laura Desmond. “These were works with a compelling conjunction of concept, medium, and technique, where an idea was pursued with purpose, dedication, and command of the formal properties of the work.”

Reflections on transitions, Eastern white pines, and fallen giants

“Transitions” is the title given to my featured artist exhibit at the Adirondack Artists Guild Gallery in Saranac Lake. It will be up for the month of July. I’d like to share the story behind 3 of my pieces in the show – and invite readers to come see them. As I get close to the end of my 8th decade, I find myself thinking about the changes I’ve lived through. Major changes in our world (the internet, hurricanes, insurrections) certainly happen and have positive and negative outcomes, but I find myself observing and thinking more about those changes, transitions, that occur in my own small sphere of existence.

Saranac Lake, NY – The Adirondack Artists Guild will present “The Hearth,” an exhibit of recent watercolor paintings by Michael Burpoe during the month of February. The show will open with a reception on Friday, February 3, from 5 to 8 p.m., and will run through March 14.

Michael Burpoe is an Adirondack artist, born and raised in Saranac Lake. A 2013 graduate of Saranac Lake High School, Michael enjoys painting expressive images of the area he grew up in. He studied graphic design at the Rochester Institute of Technology, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2017. In 2020, Michael fell in love with watercolor painting during the initial quarantining stage of the pandemic when he lived alone and yearned for a form of escapism. He found peace of mind each night by painting the tranquil lakes and dynamic mountains of the Adirondacks in his dining room.  In his first solo show, he seeks to convey the unique feelings the Adirondacks give him, especially around Winter Carnival, which he participated in as a member of the Carnival Court in 2013.
