Still Time to take in the Art Show

Dan McClelland

The Tupper Arts Center, on 106 Park street, with its bright, large open rooms has created a venue to house a lavish exhibit of works from local artists who have found their inspirations right here in the Adirondacks. Indiscriminate of the visual arts, the newly renovated, recently opened gallery features artworks from a variety of materials on a variety of media, from oil and acrylic paints, pastels and giclee prints to photographic prints and artisan pottery.
Through the entrance and into the main gallery, even a captive audience could easily find themselves getting lost within the many works that decorate the walls and the displays in that wide and open room. With so much to see, one might find themselves asking, “have I seen this piece yet?” The sheer magnitude of the gallery’s collection in this sleepy Adirondack town is intoxicating.
A strong majority of the artworks were completed by artists from Tupper Lake and its surrounding area. But even those who reign from much further away, like artist Sean M. Hall from Waldwick, New Jersey who painted Skiing at Whiteface, are able to capture and express the colors, landscapes and marvels of the Adirondacks through their works. While the Adirondacks isn’t a theme at the Tupper Arts gallery, organically it’s become the unofficial nature of the space.
The local artists from Tupper Lake that are featured in the art show are: Anne Heinz with her assortment of jewelry. Colleen Kenniston had five paintings, with local scenes like Legendary Bog Bridge. Her other works were titled Emerald Night, Old Cabin Comfort, Native American Pricess-Peace in the Sky, Woman of Adventure and Forbidden Love.
