In addition to the Enterprise, his photographs have appeared in a variety of publications over the last forty-five years, including Adirondack Life magazine and the Adirondack Life Calendar. His work has been displayed in many juried and invitational shows as well as several solo exhibitions. His oeuvre includes architectural studies, landscapes, nature photography, night photography, nudes, portraits, and street photography. Phil became interested in infrared photography while experimenting with infrared film in 1974. He began making infrared photographs digitally in 2008.

Local Nonprofit Consultants Want Your Opinion

Dear North Country Arts and Culture Community,

As a nonprofit business consultant specializing in small North Country organizations, my niche is arts organizations, like yours.

I want your opinions but first, let me show you how committed I am to arts and culture. For starters, I am the child of two professional fine artists, and majored in art in college. I understand artists and creative people.

Recently, Saranac Lake ArtWorks and I worked together for 18 months. In that time, participation in the Third Thursday ArtWalks doubled, paid membership increased by 20% and revenue earned at their major annual event grew by 38%. In 2014-18 I administered grants and managed membership and administration for the Essex County Arts Council. Over the years I have helped the Lake Placid Sinfonietta, the North Country Ballet Ensemble, Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts, Adirondack Architectural Heritage (as board member,) and the Upper Jay Art Center (as founding board secretary.)

You, the individuals from arts organizations are my audience.

I, along with my colleague Chrissie Wais (see HERE), are developing a nonprofit workshop series and we’re looking for people to take a survey about it. People who work for, are board members of, donors to or volunteer for a local nonprofit, are invited to take this survey HERE, so we can tailor a fundraising workshop series to local community needs. You can reach the survey using this QR code.

By participating in the survey you receive 25% off the workshop price.

Thank you!

Martha Pritchard Spear, MBA (see HERE)
