New Moon Show:
The SAMFest Exhibition: Art About the Land, the People, & the Climate
30 March - 27 April 2014
Regional artists will be providing works of art that will complement the SAMFest activities of April 26. Participating artists include:
- Sandra Hildreth started painting full time after she retired. Comfortable with both oils and watercolors, she uses whatever medium seems appropriate for what she wants to paint. Working 'en plein air' (outdoors, on location) has become her passion, although she also paints in her home studio when weather prevents outdoor work.
- Lee Ann Sporn, who trained as a biologist, paints local flora and fauna in a scientific, illustrative style, working in watercolor. She has recently enjoyed painting in oil, which allows her to better capture atmospheric effects, and allows her to better express the romantic connection that she feels with her subject.
- Artist Meg Bernstein produces complex images in vibrant colors. "Color and shape are my primary artistic concerns. I love a broad palette and like to see many choices in front of me when I work. I also enjoy working expressively with brush strokes. My digital work is done in layers, with sometimes as many as 30 or 40 superimposed images."
- Photographer Burdette Parks has studied and used photography as both a creative and business tool since 1964 — processing and printing his own work from the beginning. He works out of his Round Lake Studio on the shores of Middle Saranac Lake.
- Artist Tim Fortune's works have been shown at numerous galleries both nationally and internationally, have won numerous awards and are also represented in the permanent collection of the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, New York.
The exhibit will run from March 30 - April 27. Free admission. Underwritten by Friends of the VIC.
