Adirondack A&E e-News # 319




A Note from the Editors,

We hope your day has gone more smoothly than ours!

Our power went out at 9 this morning. We have a generator, but it seems the same tree that took our the electrical wires also took out the Spectrum lines as well.

We’ve limped along as best we could, but it’s made this edition of the ADK e-News a bit late. However, it all came back just now (3 pm).

Thanks for your patience!


Widlund Gallery Exhibit

Mood, Message, Mischief

Featuring Pat Frik and Dan Predmore
Tuesday, December 19 – Saturday | January 27
Reception Friday, January 5, 2024, 5 – 7 pm

Though Dan Predmore and Pat Frik work in very different media, their work shares an often whimsical and playful view of the world. Chance is a shared jumping-off point, both artists looking to the world around them for inspiration, be it an intriguing detail in a photo, an unusual color combination in a magazine ad, or an errant splat, drip or stitch during the execution of the work.

Pat and Dan are both currently working primarily within a square format, which with its simple, graphic qualities, is well suited to minimal compositions which emphasize theme and abstraction. They each incorporate unexpected materials in their work, such as Pat’s use of horsehair and rusted iron with felt, and Dan’s use of recycled wood, cardboard, dirt and semi-dried-out chunky paint. Dan’s bold colors, recurring symbols, and provocative words reflect his love of edgy, raw, and unique expression. Pat’s use of sewing thread as line enhances her more muted compositions. Both are open to creative interpretation of the unexpected.
