Daring Descents: Images of Mountain Sports
January 16 ~ February 25
Reception: Friday, January 20, 5-7 pm
The Widlund Gallery of Tannery Pond Center is proud to celebrate the gumption, chutzpah, moxie, and pure craziness of the folks who hurl themselves down snowy and icy mountains on skinny boards. Since the dawn of winter sports, artists, photographers, and writers have captured this daring. The artwork and historical objects on display reflect the variety of these descents, now and yesteryear. Present day equipment has advanced from the wooden planks and leather boots to equipment made from materials which could not have been imagined in the early 20th century. This exhibit honors the artists and athletes of the past and the present and your imagination can contemplate the winter sports of the future.
Featuring artifacts from: North Creek Depot Museum, Johnsburg Historical Society, New England/North East Lost Ski Area Project.
Featuring Art from: Nancie Battaglia, Jill Alicia Gruben, Julie Johnson, Stephanie Leonard, Mike Prescott.
Tannery Pond Center,. 228 Main Street, North Creek
