Adirondack A&E e-News # 61


Suzanne Langelier-Lebeda will be the featured artist at the Adirondack Artists Guild for the month of May, with an exhibit of watercolors opening on May 6.

She writes, “The collection of images that make up my exhibit, Watercolor Moods and Seasons, began during the isolation times that Covid 19 imposed on us. I welcomed the extra studio time to work with the challenge of watercolors. The paintings are more ‘inner landscapes’ of imagined terrain from memory rather than specific places.

For the first time in over two years, the Guild will host a reception on Friday, May 6, with light refreshments. Masks are requested. The show will run through May 31.
