The Adirondack Museum currently has a special exhibit titled “Great Wilderness, Great Expectations” with notable paintings on display.
The exhibit, which continues through Oct. 13, features works from the museum’s permanent collection showing the Adirondack landscape over more than two centuries. It highlights rarely or never-before seen artists’ sketchbooks, plus stunning examples of Adirondack photography, including rare large-format 19th century albumen prints by Seneca Ray Stoddard. Also featured are some new acquisitions including a painting by William Trost Richards and photographs by Nathan Farb.
Since the early 1800s, images of the Adirondack landscape have helped shape the American relationship to wilderness and nature. This exhibit will feature more than 50 works — some never shown before — from the Adirondack Museum’s permanent collection and explore the many ways the region was portrayed by artists, photographers and writers from the 19th century to the present era.
The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from late May to mid-October.
So pack a lunch and the kids into the car and continue their education — just because school is out for the summer doesn’t mean the learning stops!

The Pumpkin Fund has a mission is to assist responsible pet owners with unexpected large veterinary bills — and during the last month, rescue efforts.
The organization’s veterinarian bills have thus increased recently, straining their finances.
