SARANAC LAKE — Jeanne Danforth will be the featured artist at the Adirondack Artists Guild for the month of May.

She calls her show “Puddles” because it’s spring and the work is almost all water color. “Puddles” will kick off the 2024 summer season at the gallery, following a busy year and a short break for spring cleanup.

Danforth is well known throughout the area for her evocative and luminous paintings of farms, animals and roadside scenes.

“Season’s greetings! A return to exuberance, little green things, little fly-y things and greedy, damp little animals,” Danforth wrote. “Welcome come-hither blooms and broody mamas and haunting remembrances written in paint. Watercolors, of course … it’s the wet season, juicy with possibility, sap and desire. So eat dessert first — little visual desserts!”

The show will open with a reception on Friday, May 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. and will run through June 2.
