Winners Announced

Juried Show at Adirondack Artists Guild

The twenty-sixth annual juried show at the Adirondack Artists Guild opened on Friday with a gala reception.

Seventy-four works by sixty-four artists, chosen by juror Laura Desmond of the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, comprise the show. She writes: “With such a large number of submissions, and limited exhibition space, I knew that many fine works would ultimately be left out of the show, but I proceeded by addition, rather than subtraction, picking pieces that I knew I wanted to include in the exhibit. These were works with a compelling conjunction of concept, medium, and technique, where an idea was pursued with purpose, dedication, and command of the formal properties of the work.”

The first prize, given by the Artists Guild, went to Charles Reinertsen for his photograph “Grand Prismatic of the Adirondack Park.” Chris Covert of Guide Boat Realty donated the second prize to Michaele Glennon for her wool yarn piece “Ice Fishing Blues.” Diane Leifheit won third prize for her pastel painting “Torrent, Rossie Falls,” given by Lindy Ellis and Rich Shapiro of Gear-to-Go Tandems.

Desmond also chose three pieces for Honorable Mentions. These went to Phil Gallos for his photograph “Portrait of Memory,” Valerie Patterson for her watercolor “That Persistent Memory,” and Samantha Stytzer for “The Journey,” a wood carving with wood burning and spray paint.

As always, Meg Bernstein made ribbons for the award-winning pieces, tailored especially for each one.

All the artwork in the show will be on the Guild’s website HERE, and purchases may be made through the website.

Once again, a local friend of the arts is donating a people’s choice award. Visitors may vote for their favorite piece and the winner will be announced at the end of the show, on April 17.

Artist Salon with Janet Millstein

Thursday, March 21, 2024, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

The Strand’s Artist salon is an artful conversation held monthly where artists, writers, and arts professionals come together to bond, network and get out of their heads for a little while. It is a conversation; a support group; always a networking extravaganza; an experimental lab for new ideas; a place to learn and grow by leaps and bounds as an artist and a professional.

Mixed media artist Janet Millstein is this month’s Salon artists.

The Strand Center for the Arts, 23 Brinkerhoff St, Plattsburgh
