New Moon Art Exhibit: A Sense of Place
5 September - 3 October 2013
Artist Diane Leifheit and photographer Jon Chodat will exhibit their works at the Paul Smiths VIC from 5 September through 3 October 2013.
- Diane Leifheit creates fine art pastel paintings of the Adirondack rural wilderness. She has been a member of the Adirondack Artists Guild for 9 years. Leifheit shows her work at the Guild on Main Street in Saranac Lake on a year-round basis. "I've focused my work on where I live in the northern Adirondacks. It is no accident that several pieces represent the VIC. It is my back yard.” said Leifheit.
- Photographer Jon Chodat's photographs display an acute level of observation; from a hummingbird hovering within the flashy red of a monarda flower to the stillness of the Great Blue Heron waiting for dinner in the reflected gold of an autumn river. Chodat says of his work, "My work is what I have a passion for." Chodat's work has been shown regionally from Lake Placid Center for the Arts to studios in Malone. He has accrued several awards for his careful and intense photos.
