SARANAC LAKE — NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery is hosting its annual Juried Show in an online format this year.

The show will be featured for the month of June on https://northwindfineartsgallery.com, the website of the gallery whose 11 Woodruff St. location is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Interested buyers will be instructed to contact the artists directly for purchasing information.

The show is open to artists across the country in all media. The entry deadline is May 15. Cash prizes will be awarded.

The juror of selection and awards is Cristine Kossow. More about her and the Juried Show, including entry information, can be found at https://www.onlinejuriedshows.com/Default.aspx?OJSID=44211.

Recently NorthWind Fine Arts has been featuring a series of videos combining poetry and visual art. It’s a way for the gallery to creatively make up for not being able to host, in person, its annual poetry/art event. There are seven of these videos so far linked to from https://northwindfineartsgallery.com: poet Sylvia Karman with artist Susan Whiteman, poet David Crews with artist Cathy Hartung, poet Roger Mitchell with artist Russ Hartung, poet James Bourey with artist Ed Williams, poet Craig Milewski with artist Heidi Gutersloh, poet Darla Himeles with artist Lee Ann Sporn, and poet James Bourey with artist Ed Williams.
