40th Annual Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors

August 7 - September 26, 2021

Each year View hosts the Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors, open to all artists working in water-based media including transparent and opaque watercolors, acrylics, casein, egg tempera, gouache and ink. This major national exhibit showcases outstanding 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 40th annual exhibition and the highlight of our exhibition season. This year’s exhibition features 83 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.

Call for 2                Unless otherwise indicated all works are available for purchase. The purchase of an original work of art supports both the artist and View. If you have any questions about the exhibition or have an interest i 1
