LAKE PLACID — A young artist with a unique, exciting and fun take on the Adirondacks will be introducing herself to the local arts scene with an opening on Saturday, Jan. 19 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Guy Brewster Hughes Gallery in Lake Placid Public Library, 2471 Main Street.
Melissa Johnson Hood has spent countless school vacations and weekends at her family’s second home in Long Lake. Scenes from throughout the area, including High Falls Gorge and Avalanche Lake, have inspired her paintings. Using acrylic paints, posca markers and a fresh pair of eyes, she has brought exuberance and excitement to familiar Adirondack scenes.
Her works have been exhibited at the Monmouth County Festival of the Arts, at the Grimmuseum in Berlin and at the Coemeterium, Campiello San Giovanni Evangelista, and the twenty2 Palazzo Tito in Venice. Samples of her Adirondack works may be seen at her web site www.melissaspaintings.com
The event is free and the exhibition will remain at the library until March 9.
