Big news for the Glens Falls art scene to start off 2023!
LARAC (Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council) is taking on artist Sue Beadle's former Mountain Gallery in downtown Glens Falls as an additional venue for exhibits, workshops, and other events. Executive Director Phil Casabona has big goals for LARAC in his vision for the organization and its ultimate role in our community and region. LARAC will keep the Mountain Gallery name, as a tribute to Sue's hard work and dedication to promoting a vibrant and integrated arts scene in our community.
And in other news - I'm so excited to again work for LARAC to help with exhibits and events at LARAC's Mountain Gallery, as gallery curator alongside Kori Albrecht, another past and present LARAC employee. It's a perfect part-time position, 10-12 hours a week, plenty of time for my own art practice. And it will be a great space to hold workshops, including my own watercolor workshops, so much win-win!
LARAC's Mountain Gallery will open with a large group exhibit by the Guild of Adirondack Artists, January 13 - February 15, 2023. A grand Opening Reception for the space and the show will be celebrated on Friday, January 13, from 6-8pm.
I look forward to this new, yet familiar role at the gallery, working with artists and being a part of the downtown Glens Falls arts scene, setting up workshops and other fun events, and helping patrons find some new art for their walls, Never linear, life moves in circles and swirls.
