NorthWind Fine Arts presents Susan Whiteman’s “Evening Hours: Norman Ridge,” a collection of new paintings inspired by the timeless and historic farmland of Norman’s Ridge.

The exhibit will be featured Sept. 3-26, during the gallery’s new hours of 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Locals will remember the land astride Norman Ridge Road as being vast potato fields for decades, some know the history of the venerable picnic tree, saved from the ax by one of the field hands nearly a century ago –the leaves of that tree still sing when the wind blows through them.

People are drawn there to watch sunrises and sunsets, to watch cattle in the fields, to smell that first cut of hay. The land is still expertly worked and cared for.

For years, Whiteman has been walking there with her dogs, painting there, dreaming there, stepping back in time. It’s big sky country, and her paintings capture the ethereal beauty of the farm at sunset, from the first “golden hours” of the sun slanting across the fields, to the magic in the sky, to the soft lavenders of dusk. The paintings invite you to take an evening stroll into the timeless beauty of the sky and land.

NorthWind Fine Arts has been featured in Opal Magazine (an international travel magazine) and in CNN Travel. The gallery features original art made by Adirondack artists.

NorthWind Fine Arts is following NY Forward and CDC COVID-19 protocol. Please be assured that mask-wearing and social distancing will be maintained in the gallery at all times for everyone’s safety.
