Preparing for an Eclipse by Anastasia Osolin

The Adirondack Artists Guild Presents

Plein Air Eclipse Exhibit for Local Artists and Photographers

Plein Air Eclipse Exhibit Monday, April 8 thru Wednesday, April 17
Reception Monday, April 8, 6 – 8 pm

The Adirondack Artists Guild will host an informal Plein Air Eclipse Exhibit for local artists and photographers. While plein air painters are more commonly known for spending their time outdoors painting scenic views, this time artists will be tasked with capturing some of the elements or effects of the eclipse on April 8. The gallery will be open in the evening until 8 pm, as part of Saranac Lake’s Solar Fest.

Painters are encouraged to go out earlier in the day to start a painting or two of a view of their choice—then be on site, with their protective eclipse glasses, to witness and paint what happens during the total eclipse. Will it just get dark for a few minutes or will there be sunset or twilight effects that impact the landscape? For many, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The artists will be expected to finish up their paintings and then deliver them to the Artists Guild before 6 pm. They do not need to be framed and will be displayed on table top easels.

Photographers are also invited to contribute to this show by going out during the eclipse to capture it on film. Their challenge will be to get home and get an image printed in time to bring it to the Gallery by 6 pm. Photos should be mounted or matted.

There is no cost to participate, but those interested are asked to register with the Gallery so they will know how many to expect. Call 518-891-2615 or email If you are submitting work, please bring a beverage or food item for the reception in the evening of April 8.

Lighted Lithophane

Wednesday, March 27 and Wednesday, April 3, 5 – 7 pm

Take a photo and turn it into a work of art using our 3D Printers. In this 2 day class bring a digital photo (one with high contrast works best) and use the UltiMaker Cura software to turn it into a lithophane panel that when illuminated from behind will display the image. During the second day we will assemble our lithophane boxes and install lights.

Ages 14+. Teacher: Justin Collins
