2020 Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors Exhibition

August 8 - September 27, 2020

Each year View hosts the Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors, a major exhibition open to all artists working in water based media. This includes transparent and opaque watercolors, acrylics, casein, egg tempera, gouache and ink and is an outstanding demonstration of artistic talent, skill and beauty in watercolors. 

Every year this exhibit reminds us again of Miriam Kashiwa, founder and abiding inspiration for View. Miriam created the Arts Guild of Old Forge with a dedicated group of volunteers to provide the best arts experience in the Adirondacks. Today her vision continues as View. 

This is our 39th annual exhibition and the highlight of our exhibition season. This year’s exhibition features 87 works from artists across the nation. View is proud to offer such an exhibition opportunity here in the Adirondacks– far from the art galleries where one would expect to find works of this caliber. The Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors stands alone offering a rare visual treat to art aficionados and the casual visitor.
