NORTH CREEK — Art Perryman’s new exhibit for oil painting, drawing and sculpture will be held at the Tannery Pond Community Center from Dec. 29 to Jan. 23.
Perryman lives in Wevertown with his wife, Kris. His work has been displayed throughout the Adirondacks and the U.S. by the family business, Adirondack Woods. This includes the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, LARAC in Glens Falls, various festivals, art shows, galleries and shops.
Free from the constraints and influence of formal art instruction, Perryman has formulated a unique philosophy and process. He wants the anatomy of the animal correct. He wants to understand it and recreate it. He believes that art is man’s attempt to touch the surface of God’s perfect work.
The artist and his work has been the subject in journals, newspapers and periodicals. His art work has also been used to depict Adirondack wild life on many speciality items.
Perryman is a versatile artist with pencil sketches, oil and acrylic paintings, some of which have been reproduced as limited edition prints. He has sculptured in clay and produced wood carvings of moose, bear, fox, lynx, deer and horses. He is an observer of wildlife, a horseman and artist who seeks to show the life and motion of these beautiful animals in his work. In 1976, Perryman completed a large relief carving to honor the Bicentennial of the USA. A full-size leaping white-tailed deer carved from a single white pine log with hard maple antlers mounted on a cedar root will be seen in this exhibit.
The cover of “River, Rails and Ski Trails,” published by the Johnsburg Historical Society, was a drawing by Perryman as well as several Adirondack wildlife pictures in the book. He also drew the “Logging North River” for the town of Johnsburg bicentennial tapestry.
Tannery Pond Community Center is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays when the “open” flag is out.
