Adirondack Experience

Blue Mountain Lake, NY

Artists have been drawn to the Adirondack Mountains by the light and landscape of this unique region since the early 19th century and the Adirondack Experience has been collecting their work since 1955. The collection represents more than 250 artists working over a span of 200 years, and includes work in a diverse array of styles, from the Hudson River School to Modernism. In this exhibition, the museum will showcase some of the latest additions to this growing collection including 15 spectacular monochrome watercolors of the Elizabethtown area by Alexander Lawrie (1828-1917); a view of Lake Witchhopple by William Ongley (1836-1890); At Home in the Adirondacks, a portrait of the artists’ wife Gracie in camp in Caroga Lake by Charles Nicholas Sarka (1879-1960); a view of the steamboat Killoquah at dock in the Marion River Carry by George Lafayette Clough (1824-1901); as well as more recent works by Dorothy Dehner (1901-1994), John Marin (1870-1953) and ceramic artist Kathleen Spain
