Elizabethtown, NY - The Adirondack History Center Museum is having an opening reception of this year's Rosenberg Gallery Show, "A Sense of Place: Photography of the High Peaks." Curator Dan Keegan will offer a gallery walk for guests through the exhibit. The event is Friday, June 3 at 6 p.m.
Images of the Adirondacks have been captured since the early days of photography. Work from some of the greatest Adirondack photographers, from historic images taken in the 1870s to the modern day professionals, will be gathered to create a show that reflects man's view of the Adirondacks. Our relationship with the High Peaks will be explored by displaying 150 years of images. The exhibit is curated by Dan Keegan, who recently retired as director from the Milwaukee Art Museum. The Rosenberg Art Gallery is sponsored in part by Sun Community News & Printing.
Along with classic historic photographers like Seneca Ray Stoddard and George Bacon Wood, the museum is featuring some rarely seen images captured by unknown photographers.
The modern artists include both established and up-and-coming photographers. Included in the show are Mark Bowie, Nancie Battaglia, Tony Beaver, Linda Benzon, Luke Dow, Johnathan Esper, Carl Heilman, Joanne Kennedy, Chris Lang, Joe LeFevre, Manuel Palacios, Susan Runyon, Jessica Tabora, Chris Tennant and Ed Williams.
Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.
