Water & Light: S.R. Stoddard’s Lake George

Date/Time: 5/11/2017 - 10/1/2017 (10:00 am - 04:00 pm)

Seneca Ray Stoddard (1844-1917) captured scenes of the region over a span of 40 years. In his images he used water as a key compositional element, and he experimented with natural light to create delightful visual effects. The Chapman Museum has selected 46 images of Lake George (from more than 700) that best capture Stoddard’s mastery of the interplay of water and light. They range the length of the lake from Fort William Henry Hotel to the south through the picturesque islands of The Narrows to Rogers Rock in the north. Included are many landmarks – Pearl Point, Black Mountain, French Point, Recluse Island, Sabbath Day Point, and Hulett’s Landing, to name a few.

Funded by grants from the Leo Cox Beach Philanthropic Foundation and the Waldo T. Ross & Ruth S. Ross Charitable Trust Foundation, and support from the City of Glens Falls and the Town of Queensbury. Sponsored by The Adirondack Trust Co. and the Lake George Mirror.

Many of these geometric shapes derived from his simple line-drawn images of nature. Twenty-six prints from his Plant Series will form a small companion exhibition in the Whitney-Renz Gallery. All the works come from the extensive collection of Ellsworth Kelly prints belonging to the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation in Portland, Oregon.

Inspecting Carol at HMT

By Daniel Sullivan. Take a seat for a laugh out loud razzle dazzle of funny characters in this hilarious farce! This madcap comedy creates a theater experience that is anything but show business as usual. The play is about a group of dysfunctional theater people who take themselves very seriously. This struggling theater company is set to open their annual production of A Christmas Carol when they find out their funding is being held up until they pass an undercover inspection. When an impossibly bad actor is mistakenly identified as the inspector, the troupe does everything to accommodate his craziest wishes. As the impending opening night draws closer, it seems only a Christmas miracle will save this production.
