New York State DEC Announces New ‘Love Our New York Lands’ Photo Contest

Visitors Encouraged to Capture Ways to Safely and Responsibly Enjoy DEC’s Outdoor Offerings

Monthly Contest Kicks Off Seeking Pride Month Submissions through June 30 to Highlight Keeping State Lands Welcoming to All

The online contest will feature five monthly themes through mid-October, with the winning images receiving prizes and featured in statewide digital and print campaigns to help increase awareness of important principles and guidelines that encourage safe, accessible, respectful, and sustainable use of public lands.

Each month of the Love Our New York Lands contest will have a different theme. June’s theme is “Pride” to highlight the importance of sharing State lands with all New Yorkers, including the LGBTQIA+ community, and ensuring a safe and welcoming space. Seven winning pictures will be chosen that represent each color of the rainbow Pride flag: pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and indigo/violet. The Pride pictures will be used next year in a curated compilation similar to this year’s image created by DEC and found here, among other potential uses.

Prizes will be awarded to the winning entries. Photos will be judged on the following criteria: originality; artistic composition; technical quality; and whether the photograph showcases people enjoying New York’s outdoor activities safely and responsibly.

Read the full details HERE.

The video, assembled from 16mm home movie films, shares the true life experiences of lumberjacks during the 1930s and 1940s as filmed by Reverend Frank Reed, one of the many itinerant preachers (or “sky pilots”) who visited lumber camps in the North Country.

Glens Falls Artist Hannah Williams Creates Mural for Golden Arrow Resort

The Lake Placid/North Elba Arts Alliance is proud to announce the creation of a new mural on the front of the Golden Arrow Resort complex on Main Street. The mural will be painted above the doorway to Locker Room 5 and is expected to be completed by mid-June, just as the summer season begins.

As part of an initiative to increase the visibility of art and culture throughout the community, the Arts Alliance put out a call in 2023 for a local artist who could design a mural that would reflect the Adirondacks and the Bavarian style of the Golden Arrow Resort, in keeping with the owners’ heritage.

Muralist Hannah Williams of Glens Falls was selected for the project. With a deep passion for large-scale murals, Hannah has been running her own successful mural business for over a decade. Her work has been showcased in numerous galleries throughout New York State and has also been featured in multiple art publications and magazines.

See Adirondack A&E e-News # 261 from July 31, 2023 for info on the original call for artists for this project HERE.


And speaking of murals…

It’ll be painted later this month on the wall of Warren Tire Service Center on Broad Street, which faces Stafford Middle School, and will be dedicated at the Lake City Arts Fest in August.

Listen in to NCPR’s Cara Chapman piece “Upcoming Plattsburgh mural aims to prevent and destigmatize suicide” HERE.
