Paintings of the Adirondacks by Sandra Hildreth

Through Thursday, August 29, 2024

Just about all of the paintings in this show were done “en plein air,” outdoors, on location. Most of them were done at the VIC.

This exhibit offers an extraordinary opportunity to give back to the VIC.

A heartfelt message from Sandra Hildreth:
“I’ve been painting at the VIC for over 20 years, observing how the light changes from morning to afternoon, the colors, from one season to another, and the views from year to year. This is a special place that provides educational experiences, recreational opportunities and access for all. I believe my paintings illustrate the great respect I have for the Adirondack environment. I am humbly grateful for the 100s of hours spent on the VIC trails. In return I am offering a special opportunity to both bring home a painting and help support the programming of the VIC.”

Pieces that were done on VIC property have unique pricing available that include a donation to the VIC. Please see the exhibit in person or contact the front desk for more information.

Submission Deadline June 17, 2024

SLC Arts invites artists aged 16+ to explore the vital role of the waterways in the North Country region and their profound impact on our lives and communities. We are seeking submissions of both 2D and 3D artworks that celebrate the beauty, resilience, and significance of the region’s rivers, lakes, and streams. Artists are encouraged to draw inspiration from Indigenous knowledge and perspectives, incorporating traditional ecological wisdom and cultural narratives that honor the interconnected relationship between humans and water. Through their art, we hope to convey the ways in which these waterways have sustained us physically, culturally, and spiritually, while also highlighting the importance of conservation and stewardship for future generations.
