A year into this pandemic, and many small businesses are struggling with how to safely stay in business. Our area artists and galleries are no exception. Fortunately, we have the largest “canvas” in the world available to us – the internet!
Several of our galleries have opted to hold virtual exhibits in addition to in-gallery shows. NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery (https://northwindfineartsgallery.com) is now sharing a space in the back of the former Sears Store (62 Main St., Saranac Lake) with ADK ArtRise (https://www.adkartrise.com) – a school offering art classes.
“A Select Rustic Show,” a new exhibit at View, the Center for Arts and Culture in Old Forge, will have an online virtual opening reception at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 26. The online reception is being planned due to the uncertain nature of New York State’s Phase 4 reopening schedule. Everyone can participate in the reception by visiting ViewArts.org.
The online opening will include the following: a Rustic design video introduction by acclaimed Rustic artist Barney Bellinger, a presentation entitled “The Roots of Adirondack Rustic,” by Director Emerita of the Adirondack Museum, Caroline Welsh, and a digital magazine about the artists and their exhibiting work.
