plein air festival

congratulations to our plein air winners!

Gary Casagrain had the difficult task of judging the show on Saturday 10/3 to award first, second, and third prize to the talented artists. Deborah Geurtze, of Saranac Lake, took first place with her watercolor of the much coveted Bog River Falls. Geurtze studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and obtained her BA in painting and printmaking at SUNY Potsdam. She also completed her masters in printmaking at SUNY Albany, and has shown her work in over 60 national outdoor shows. Second place went to Patricia Bellerose, an accomplished artist from Quebec for her oil painting, "Summer's End," on the shore of Little Wolf. Patrick McPhee, from Binghamton, took third place with his oil painting, "Looking Down the Flow," which he painted from the flow looking south. McPhee was last year's first place winner. The People's Choice Award went to Tarryl Gabel, for her painting of the iconic Northwood Cabins neon sign. Gabel also submitted several impressive landscapes of the area.

Who we are ...

Tupper Lake has a century-old identity as a vibrant, self-sustaining artistic community. Tupper Arts endeavors to revitalize this tradition for new generations through activities that include outreach to K-12 students and programming for teens, adults, and seniors.  Just like the abundant beauty of our Adirondack environment, the rich artistic creativity of Tupper Lake deserves nurturing and caretaking for years to come. 


The mission of Tupper Arts is to promote the efforts and achievements of artists and artisans of all ages in Tupper Lake and the surrounding Adirondack Park, including painters, potters, dancers, woodworkers, musicians, actors, composers and playwrights, storytellers, and graphic-design artists. By supporting and encouraging local artists, Tupper Arts hopes to help enrich the cultural life of the entire community as we present art exhibits, classes, workshops, book readings, concerts, theater, and other events.

The new Tupper Arts Center (TAC), located at 106 Park Street next to the Adirondack State Theater, is already a focal point for these exciting activities. For more information, please contact us at 518-359-5042 or info@tupperarts.com.
