“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.

For the month of August, Nancy Brossard will be the featured artist at the Adirondack Artists Guild (AAG). Her exhibit hosts a variety of new oil paintings, all started in plein air (on location), and finished in her home studio. Many of the paintings in this show were painted during excursions with Sandra Hildreth, a fellow AAG artist and longtime friend.
It was my pleasure to interview artist Sandra Hildreth at her home studio/gallery in Saranac Lake, with walls adorned by luxurious framed oil paintings and watercolors of the Adirondack mountains, lakes, rivers and waterfalls.
All of her landscape or waterscapes are of specific places that she has visited, often by hiking, paddling, or skiing to the location. While sitting at a beautiful wood table in the heart of her home, I couldn’t take my eyes off “Snow Squalls,” (pictured here) a winter scene that has been accepted to the 86th Annual National Juried Art Exhibition (Cooperstown, New York, July 9-August 13, 2021.)

We called the show “Responding”, and the gallery was full of deeply moving and expressive creations.
