Adirondacks Celebrated At SLU Art Gallery

Tools

From dramatic vistas to pristine landscapes, the beauty of the Adirondacks and its people have captivated many of those who live and visit the mountain region for centuries.

At St. Lawrence University's Brush Art Gallery, three Adirondack-based exhibits give a view of the region from a number of different perspectives.

Included among the items on display are hand-made Native American baskets and beadworks from Akwesasne as well as intriguing paintings from Harold Weston, who became one of the founders of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Several other drawings, watercolors and photographs of the Adirondack wilderness from 1860 to 1960 by other artists including Frederic Remington are also included.

"The Adirondacks are a complicated place and so trying to represent them in one show would be very difficult and I think that's kind of why we decided to have different perspectives," said Catherine Tedford, gallery director.

The Adirondack collections will remain on exhibit through October 11.
