NORTH CREEK - The Widlund Gallery at Tannery Pond Community Center will welcome members of the Adirondack Pastel Society during the month of April. Members will display their work at April 3 - 28 and be honored at an artists' reception in the gallery on April 17 from 5 - 7 p.m.
The exhibit will feature work that is all in soft pastels.
"The Adirondack Pastel Society members offer such a broad range of motifs," said Elise Widlund. "They will show portraiture, landscapes as well as abstract work. We are so honored to welcome them to the gallery."
The Adirondack Pastel Society was founded in 2008 by a group of regional pastel artists with the goal of promoting pastel as an artistic medium and to provide networking and informational support to artists working in pastels. The group meets every other month in the Shirt Factory Building in Glens Falls.
Programs, artist demonstrations, and exhibitions are planned throughout the year. Currently the organization has about 30 members. The following members will be exhibiting: Bev Saunders of Glens Falls, Dave Francis of Hudson Falls, and Lise Fuller of Glens Falls. Jan Palmer and Nancy Ness will also join them.
The Adirondack Pastel Society consists of members from throughout NY State and even parts of Vermont. For more information on the group, call Dave Francis at 793-9309 or Bev Saunders at 793-9350, or visit www.adirondackpastelsociety.com.
The April 17 reception will be followed by a film in the auditorium sponsored by the Our Town Theater Group.
