Contemporary Rustic at Giant Mountain Studio

jon-swartwout-rhea-costello-matt-gregson-mary-stewartGiant Mountain Studio is host to a fine art gallery in Schroon Lake. Recently, an opening reception was held for Springtime at the Gallery – a group exhibit showcasing over 180 original works by 28 local and regional artists.

Various media are represented including paintings, photography, pottery and rustic furniture.

Traditional rustic style emphasizes rugged, natural beauty. It embraces nature-inspired textures, simple and earthy colors, and ultimately an unpretentious, organic warmth. While rustic style in its most traditional sense might appear heavy and dark today, a contemporary rustic style has emerged over the past few years that feels both fresh and real, light and grounded. Springtime at the Gallery is an exhibit with fine examples of this new rustic style. » Continue Reading.

A Photography Shoot-Out In Paul Smiths

hartung_VICNightLightThere is a remarkable experiment on display in the gallery space of the Paul Smith’s College Visitors Interpretive Center (VIC). Twelve area photographers were invited to come out to the VIC between April 17 and 21 to capture images of the property. Then they had a couple of days to review their efforts, print, mat and frame them for this exhibit, which was hung on April 25.

The experiment was actually my idea. I absolutely love the challenges of plein air painting – hauling my paints and easel out to a view I like and spending a day creating a painting. I find it’s a wonderful way to totally immerse myself in that specific environment and put the rest of my life out of my mind for those enjoyable hours, not to mention the fresh air and (hopefully) sunshine. It’s like the difference between an impromptu talk and a rehearsed speech; you have to produce – right there – on the spot. » Continue Reading.

Select Works By Stephanie Berube In North Creek

MandelaStephanie Berube is a local artist, living in Thurman who studied art and art history at Hartwick College in Oneonta which happens to be near the Golden acrylic paint factory. Stephanie loves working with acrylic paints and as a student she took advantage of the Golden’s “Seconds Program” which offers paint that does not meet company standards at little or no cost to local artists.

While studying art, she became very excited about the ways in which new acrylics could be applied to her work. In particular Stephanie was fascinated with flow release, a concentrated surface-active liquid that allows her to control how the paint drips down the painting, pulling color along to create a look reminiscent of tie-dye. » Continue Reading.

For those who have never visited the museum in Blue Mountain Lake, “Wild Nature” is an introduction both to master works of American art depicting the landscape of the Adirondacks and to the museum itself, which is closed in the off-season. » Continue Reading.
