In this group we showcase work that centers on the natural and cultural history of the Adirondack Park.
The Adirondack Park is a 6 million acre park located in Upstate New York and is a combination of both public and private lands. It is one of the most well protect parks in the United States because it is written into the New York State constitution. The park serves as a model for managers around the world as a way to incorporate communities into a park.
This group is for artists who work within the Adirondack Park, as well as those of are interested in learning more about this unique experiment in conservation.
While the group will undoubtedly be dominated by sweeping vistas as seen from the many mountains, lakes and ponds, we also encourage artwork that highlights the cultural aspects of the park. The towns and people that live in the Adirondacks are unique and as much a part of the landscape as the vast tracts of wilderness. Without them the park would not exist.
