71st Annual Central Adirondack Art Show

April 2 - June 5, 2022

Next Session: Saturday, April 02, 2022 - Sunday, June 05, 2022 / All Day

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 1951 in the front yard of View’s founder Miriam Kashiwa, 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.

Awards Judge: Ann Larsen

Ann Larsen was born in Louisville, Kentucky and began traveling and living throughout the United States at the age of 18.   Having studied at Indiana University, the Rhode Island School of Design and finally receiving a Bachelor of Art degree while living in Oklahoma, her family relocated to Denver where for the next 5 years she painted across the west from Colorado to California. Her love of landscape continued for the next 20 years while living in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York. Although, living in a beautiful part of the country, where plein air painting is a challenge almost any time of year, Ann also spends time painting on the coast of Maine and Massachusetts.  One of her most memorable trips was a week of painting on iconic Monhegan Island, Maine. She states that, “being able to walk in the footsteps of some of the country’s greatest painters was incredibly inspiring.”

Tips for taking images of your work

To help take the best pictures possible of your work, we have found some in-depth, step-by-step tutorials to aid you in the process. The links below include a lot of details, but the key takeaways are all the same:

  • Most smartphone cameras will work well with good lighting
  • Use a window or open/glass door to use as much natural light as possible
  • Try not to shoot your work from an angle; square it up and aim for the center of the piece
