SARANAC LAKE – Guild member Burdette Parks will be the featured artist at the Adirondack Artists Guild for the month of June with “Far and Near.”

The show includes new photographs portraying varying aspects of those words. “Far” can be scenes or objects removed from the observer at a relative distance or a more significant geographical distance. It could be an apparent distance or a very real one. “Near” can be something that is close at hand or close to home, or it can be a capture very close up. Far or near can also differentiate between familiar and unfamiliar. Locales in the show are scattered across the globe with subjects pictured at a distance or very intimately.

There will be an opening reception for the show from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, June 7 at the Adirondack Artists Guild Gallery located at 52 Main Street. The show will be on display from June 6 to July 2.

The gallery is located at 52 Main St. and can be reached at 518-891-2615. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays. Beginning on June 20 the gallery will be open seven days a week, with extended hours on Thursdays until 7 p.m.
