PAUL SMITHS – Jeanne Dupre, a watercolor landscape artist from the Old Forge area, is displaying works at the Joan Weill Adirondack Library at Paul Smith’s College until Saturday, April 2.
Dupre says that for years, she has been drawn to the Adirondacks for inspiration. She has exhibited widely in the Adirondacks, including at the Old Forge Art Center, the Adirondack Lake Center for the Arts at Blue Mountain Lake, the Rustic Furniture Show at the Adirondack Museum, and elsewhere; currently, her work can also be seen at Gallery 3040 Main Street in Old Forge, and the Adirondack Rustics Gallery in Schroon Lake.
“I particularly love trying to capture the weather effects of the Adirondack Mountains and lakes in watercolor,” Dupre said. “I think we should all pause a moment in our busy day and admire the beauty that nature shares freely with us.”
The exhibition is free and open to the public. The library’s hours are from 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m., Mon.-Thurs.; 7:30 a.m. - 6 p.m., Friday; 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday; and 1 – 10 p.m., Sunday.
