Photo collection featured at Adirondack Artists Guild
SARANAC LAKE — SQUARE, a collection of recent photographs by Eleanor Sweeney, will be the featured exhibit at the Adirondack Artists Guild during the month of August.
“Last year I came across a package of 12” x 12” pieces of aluminum that I had forgotten about,” Eleanor writes. “I decided it was time to start using up materials I already had, and thought that a show of all square works would be a good project. I’ve always liked the square format and have missed my old 2 1/4” x 2 1/4” camera that I used for making black and white photographs.”
Most of the works are photo transfers on aluminum, which are shimmery and changeable depending on the light. Others are transfers on birch boxes, and one is a large traditional framed photograph.
The exhibit will run from Aug. 5-31. There will not be a reception due to the pandemic, but on Friday August 7, Eleanor will be at the gallery, masked and distanced, from 4 to 6 p.m.
The gallery is observing strict guidelines for visitors. No more than six customers may be in the gallery at one time, and everyone must wear a mask. Social distancing is required.
Throughout August the gallery will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
