‘Beauty Is all around us’

Ed Williams’ show “Beauty Is All Around Us” will feature artworks of beautiful things one may regularly take for granted, like his piece above.

SARANAC LAKE — NorthWind Fine Arts presents member Ed Williams’ show “Beauty Is All Around Us.” The exhibit reception is Friday, Sept. 6, from 5 to 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. The public is welcome to attend.

Williams’ focus for this show is on the beautiful things one might take for granted while walking in the woods or driving in the car. He’s curated a collection of precious surprises, including tiny woodland wildflowers, frogs, and subtle landscapes. Using his signature style of negative space and painting techniques, his collection features monochrome or chromatic interpretations. Williams has been a member of NorthWind Fine Arts since 2015, and his work has won awards in national photography competitions across the United States. The show will be on exhibit through Sept. 30.

NorthWind Fine Arts has been featured in Opal Magazine (an international travel magazine) and in CNN Travel. The cooperative gallery features original art made by Adirondack artists. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. The gallery is closed Tuesdays. For more information, call 518-354-1875.
