Official Launch of the Saunders Gallery of Fine Art

It is now official,
 The first show of the new gallery will be celebrated next Saturday, 
February 15th with the opening of 
"Left Behind" photographs by Ian Creitz.
Feb. 15 - March 29, 2014
This show supports the Hyde Collection's current show featuring Ansel Adams "Early Works" now through April 20th.

"Ian Creitz has found a passion in the wonder of the landscape of life. A collection of photographs depicting abandoned architectures and natural landscapes. There is fascination with the power of nature overtaking these structures, ultimately returning them to the earth." Bev Saunders

 "En Plein Air"

En plein air (French pronunciation: ​[ɑ̃ plɛn ɛʁ]) is a French expression which means "in the open air," and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors, which is also called peinture sur le motif
 ("painting on the ground") in French.

Ann Larsen - Biography

Ann is an award winning artist living in upstate

 New York's Adirondack Mountains.  

Born in Louisivlle, KY, Ann began traveling and living

 throughout the United States at the age of 18.  

 After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Central Oklahoma, she and her family moved to Denver, CO where Ann began to focus on her painting and fell in love with the western landscape.  

 Even though she lives in a beautiful part of the country, 

where plein air painting is a challenge almost any time of year, 

Ann also spends time painting on the coast of Maine and throughout the Southwest.   

Ann's approach to the landscape is to simplify as much as possible in order to create
 the strongest paintings. 
 "I want my viewers to know how I felt about a place when I painted it. 
 I'm not trying to copy what I see nor am I interested in lots of detail.
  I want to suggest a subject with the buildup of paint and exciting brushstrokes."

Northlight Gallery in Kennebunkport, ME states,
 "Ann's work exhibits the careful, thoughtful hand of an artist deeply committed to both her medium and her environment.   Ann is able to suggest the power, grace and mood of her subject as she captures the essence of New England in her landscapes and seascapes."

Saunders Gallery of Fine Art at bjsartworks, Glens Falls, NY states, 
"Ann's experienced/natural color sense, makes her paintings exciting and vibrant.
 When painting "Plein Air" she capture's a truth in the place she is painting that can only be expressed through her experience on location."
