NORTH CREEK - The Widlund Gallery at Tannery Pond Community Center will welcome Mark W. Perry of Bolton Landing, who will exhibit his digital photography from Jan. 5 - 28. Also featured will be the works of local potter and Town of Johnsburg librarian, Susan Schmidt.
As a nature photographer, Perry has worked over the past few years capturing the spirit of the mountains and lakes that have meant so much to him. He has developed a Multi-Media presentation called, "Inside The Adirondacks". He has also published his own book which is claims the same title. Perry's work ranges from an 8 ft. panoramic image of Lake George to an 8x10 image of a lone leaf on a mountain trail.
"Being a nature photographer has given me the opportunity to go and see many places and to hopefully bring back images to share that will bring a smile to ones face and a sense of peace in a very busy world. I hope my Images bring alive the spirit of the wilderness and the beauty of our surroundings," he said.
An artist's reception has been scheduled for Perry on Jan. 16 from 5-7 pm. The reception is free and open to the public and will be followed by a film, "Frozen River", sponsored by Our Town Theater Group.
Schmidt works from her home in Pottersville, NY, creating functional and decorative stoneware pottery showcasing the unique pottery techniques of saggar, horsetail raku and naked raku.
The Widlund Gallery in Tannery Pond Community Center is open Monday - Saturday from 9 am - 4 pm and on Sundays when the "Open" flag is out. For gallery information: call 251-2421 or visit the website at www.tpcca.org.
