Kries and Pouch local art on display

BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE - Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts is currently exhibiting works by two artists from Indian Lake. "Lines and Movement," an exhibit of woodcarvings by James Kries continues through Dec. 19. "Humans," an exhibit of photographs by Al Pouch, will be on display through Dec. 21.

For Kries, the study of the creative process has been a constant in his work. That process is a function of his medium, wood. Line and movement more than creating representational art are what move him. Kries has plans to lead a woodcarving workshop in 2009 at ALCA to help others explore the creative process.

Pouch was inspired by the Edward Steichen exhibit in the mid 1950's titled, "The Family of Man." The individual photos in the series "Humans" show humans behaving humanly with their actions frozen in time.

Meet the artists Saturday, Dec. 6 beginning at 5 p.m. during The Art Center's Holiday Potluck Dinner. Call 352-7715 or visit www.adk-arts.org for more information.
