Henry Fair: Nature as the Inspiration for Art and Life
September 12, 2022, 7 – 8 pm, Free
An evening conversation with photographer J Henry Fair and naturalist Ed Kanze, moderated by NCPR’s Mitch Teich. ADKX’s 2022 seasonal exhibition “Scarred Landscape” features Fair’s monumental aerial photographs documenting human impact upon the Adirondack landscape; the writings of Ed Kanze complement the images. This highly visual program will expand upon the exhibition narrative and offer a thoughtful dialogue between photographer and naturalist as they talk about their work and what the future holds for the region’s fragile beauty.
“Scarred Landscape” will be open during the evening of the program from 6:30-6:50. Henry Fair and Ed Kanze will be in the gallery to talk with visitors. There will be no admission fee to see the exhibition that evening.
This program will be a hybrid event (in-person AND virtual). Those interested in attending the program in-person can register HERE.

Timothy Hill is a singer, composer, guitarist, pianist and educator.
