LAKE GEORGE Opening Jan. 19 and running through Feb. 22, the Lake George Arts Projects Courthouse Gallery will present a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Robin Arnold. There will be a reception for the artist on Saturday, Jan. 19, from 4 - 6 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. Robin Arnolds large scale paintings blur the boundaries between natural and artificial, human and animal, actual and imagined. In these narrative scenes animals and toys play out themes of power and vulnerability. She says, To my eye, toys vibrate with schizophrenic energy. Their exaggeratedly strong and appealing (thus marketable) character seems at odds with their intended role as carriers of narrative: in play, they are meant to transform into whatever we imagine. The Courthouse Gallery hours during exhibitions are Tuesday through Friday noon 5 p.m., Saturday noon 4 p.m., and all other times by appointment. The Courthouse Gallery is located at the side entrance of the Old County Courthouse, corner of Canada and Lower Amherst Streets, Lake George.
