NorthWind Fine Arts Presents Susan Whiteman's "Evening Hours: Norman Ridge"
NorthWind Fine Arts is pleased to present Susan Whiteman’s “Evening Hours: Norman Ridge,” a collection of new paintings inspired by the timeless and historic farmland of Norman’s Ridge. In lieu of an opening, our members warmly invite you to stop by and visit the exhibit during our new gallery hours of Thursday- Saturday, 11-5. The exhibit will be featured September 3-26.
Locals will remember the land astride Norman Ridge Road as being vast potato fields for decades, some know the history of the venerable picnic tree, saved from the ax by one of the field hands nearly a century ago—the leaves of that tree still sing when the wind blows through them. People are drawn there to watch sunrises and sunsets, to watch cattle in the fields, to smell that first cut of hay. The land is still expertly worked and cared for. For years, artist Susan Whiteman has been walking there with her dogs, painting there, dreaming there, stepping back in time. It’s big sky country, and her paintings capture the ethereal beauty of the farm at sunset, from the first “golden hours” of the sun slanting across the fields, to the magic in the sky, to the soft lavenders of dusk. The paintings invite you to take an evening stroll into the timeless beauty of the sky and land.
NorthWind Fine Arts has been featured in Opal Magazine (an international travel magazine) and in CNN Travel. We are in the heart of the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks and feature original art made by Adirondack artists.
