Eleanor Sweeney Exhibit at Adirondack Artists Guild

“Flowers,” an exhibit of recent photographs by Eleanor Sweeney, will be on display at the Adirondack Artists Guild from June 3 through June 27.

Eleanor made most of the works in the show during this past winter. She was inspired by the beautiful bunches of tulips grown at Little Farmhouse Flowers in Jay and available at Nori’s. Starting out as normal looking tulips, some of them expanded into ruffly exotic flowers that she would photograph daily until their petals dropped off.

The show also includes some sunflowers, which Eleanor happened to make in January and early February, never thinking about the significance they would come to have after the invasion of Ukraine.

A few of the photographs will appear more than once, but will be very different from each other because of the ways Eleanor manipulated and printed them.

On Friday, June 3, the gallery will host a reception for “Flowers” from 5 – 7 pm. Because of the current rise in Covid cases there will not be refreshments, and masks will be requested.

The Adirondack Artists Guild is a cooperative retail art gallery representing a diverse group of artists residing and working in the Tri-Lakes region of the Adirondack Park. The gallery is located at 52 Main St, Saranac Lake, 518 891-2615. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 until 5, and 11-3 on Sundays. The Guild is on Facebook, Instagram, and on the web HERE.


J.E. Irvin, a career educator and the award-winning author of five mystery novels, visits Wanakena at 3 pm Saturday, May 28, 2022, for a book talk about her latest novel – BROKEN – which is set in the hamlet.

Irvin will speak about her writing process as well as the local activities and events that inspired the novel. Hosted by Otto’s Abode, the presentation will take place in the gazebo (weather permitting) or inside the store. Books will be available for purchase and signing, and each attendee will receive a goody bag of book-related items.

Irvin’s stories, poems, and essays have appeared in a variety of print and online publications, including Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, Hawaii Pacific Review, FLIGHTS, Literary Mama, and MockTurtleZine. Retired after a long career as a high school teacher, Irvin leads classes on writing the novel and on short stories through the University of Dayton Osher Lifelong Learning Center. Long-time paddlers, she and her husband, their two crazy cats, and their 17-ft. Kevlar canoe reside in southwestern Ohio on the edge of a nature park. Their 1925 Old Town boat is in storage awaiting re-canvassing.

Fort Ticonderoga’s layers of history carry right from the land onto the water. Carillon boat tours help ignite visitors’ imaginations as they explore this internationally strategic lake.

Boat tours will run Tuesday-Sunday May 27-mid-October. The 60-foot boat is available for daily tours, field trips, sunset cruises, and private charters. A selection of regional beer and cider, wine, soft drinks, water, and snacks are available for purchase on board.
