Segunda Casa welcomes artist Mark Gibian back to the Adirondacks with an exhibition of abstract sculptural watercolors. “Structural Prototypes” features a collection of watercolors and powdered pigment monoprints on paper that are closely related to Gibian’s three-dimensional work.

Based in Brooklyn, NY and the Hudson Valley, Gibian’s 3-D sculptures embrace the organic, structural, and industrial. Most recently, he is creating a series of mechanical flower sculptures with kinetic petals. Gibian’s work is held in both private and public collections, including major sculptural works at the Hudson River Park, Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Subway Station, and Williamsburg’s Northside Pier in Brooklyn.

Gibian has been hiking and canoeing in the Adirondacks throughout his life, and is a proud 46’er (#475). Stop by Barley Sandwich at 19 Broadway in Saranac Lake between February 12 and March 12, 2022 to view “Sculptural Prototypes” (opening reception, February 13th at 4 pm).

Questions about the exhibition, Segunda Casa, or requests for images/interviews should be directed to Carmen Rita Perez at Learn more about artist Mark Gibian HERE.

Robert Rogers and his Rangers return to Fort Ticonderoga Saturday, February 26, 2022 through the dramatic 1759 Battle on Snowshoes reenactment from 10 am to 4 pm!

The Battle on Snowshoes event vividly recreates the final winter battle between a scout of Mohawk warriors, British Regulars, and Rogers’ Rangers, versus the French garrison of soldiers, Canadians and Native American warriors at Fort Ticonderoga on March 7, 1759. This event is designed to be a rich experience for guests of all ages as they explore the final Battle on Snowshoes within the year 1759.

Throughout the day, visitors will explore life for the French garrison inside Fort Ticonderoga, discovering the sights and sounds of daily life for the soldiers guarding French Canada’s front line. Hear the rousing beat of French drummers during a 12:30 p.m. concert highlighting the songs that regulated military life and learn the words to French folk songs that soldiers enjoyed as they worked. Savor the aroma of a hearty soup as it is prepared using dried and salted rations. Tour through the French soldiers’ quarters and watch as soldiers cut the firewood used to heat them. See the few simple luxuries of the Officers’ quarters and learn more about the dire situation for French Canada in 1759.

Hands-on programming explores the components of French artillery ammunition as Fort Ticonderoga staff recreate the shot stockpiled for the coming summer siege. Strap on your snowshoes and march out to the edge of frozen Lake Champlain to see the real battlefield for the 1759 presentation of the Battle on Snowshoes. During the 1:30 pm battle, become immersed as the Rangers ambush turns into a fight for their lives and the French attempt to cut off their retreat. Winter footwear is strongly encouraged!
