The 2016 Central Adirondack Art Show

May 7 - June 12, 2016

The Central Adirondack Art show is a long-standing Old Forge tradition, showcasing some of the finest artists from throughout the Central Adirondack Region and beyond. Held for the first time in 1952, by View founder Miriam Kashiwa in her front yard, the Central Adirondack Art Show is a testament to the significant place the arts hold within the hearts and minds of the residents and visitors to the Adirondacks. The exhibition is open to all artists, age 16 and up working in any media (except sound, video and film).

Join us on Saturday May 7th from 5-7pm for an opening reception celebrating the Central Adirondack Art Show, and solo exhibitions by Bob Erickson, James Bellucci, Nancy Mills, and Tracy Genovese.

Awards Judge: Sandra Hildreth

Sandra Hildreth is an active working artist and member of the Adirondack Artists Guild Gallery, a co-op gallery in Saranac Lake, NY. She graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, plus teacher certification, and taught high school art in northern NY for 31 years. Her oil and watercolor paintings are in many private collections, including St. Lawrence University. Hildreth is a founding member of Saranac Lake ArtWorks and created and organizes the annual Adirondack Plein Air Festival.
