Throughout September, Imagine, the fine arts and fine craft gallery at 38 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles, will present an exhibition of original artwork from the children’s book “Adirondack ABCs.”
The exhibition opens 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 6, as part of Skaneateles’ First Friday art walk. Refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by the Usual Suspects.
“Adirondack ABCs,” written by Joyce Burgess Snavlin and illustrated by Linda Davis Reed, introduces young readers to the alphabet through Adirondack scenes and icons, such as bears and beavers, frogs and ferns, lean-tos and loons.
Original artwork from the book was exhibited this past spring at View Art Center’s Eco Gallery, in Old Forge.
“We brought the exhibition to Skaneateles because we believe it’s something the whole family will enjoy,” says gallery director Sarah Panzarella.
Imagine is located in the lakeside village of Skaneateles, nestled in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York. It represents artists from across the country and Canada, along with many Central New York artists, to create one of the most diverse contemporary art collections in the area.
The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Saturday; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday; 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
