Artists Guild features Brossard paintings

Lake Clear in summer (Painting by Nancy Brossard)

SARANAC LAKE — Nancy Brossard will be the featured artist at the Adirondack Artists Guild for the month of November.

Brossard is a plein air (outdoor) painter and a longtime member of the guild. Her show includes all new oil paintings of the Tri-Lakes area. There are large-scale landscapes as well as smaller works of trees or water. One of her favorite painting places is Bog River Falls in Tupper Lake, and she has a large winter scene of the falls flowing through ice and snow. Another large painting is Lake Clear in the summer.

She works exclusively in oil, beginning each piece outdoors. Later, in the studio, she adds paint in layers, taking time to let each layer set, adding more paint to develop depth and underpainting.

Other works by Brossard can be seen at Gallery 46, the Lake Placid Center for the Arts’ satellite gallery on Main Street, Lake Placid.

The show will open on Friday, Nov. 6 and run through Nov. 29, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no reception. A maximum of six visitors may be in the gallery at one time, and masks and social distancing are required.
