About the Artist: Les Cosgrove
Les Cosgrove grew up in Chateaugay, NY, one mile from the Canadian border. She lived and worked on her family’s dairy farm until she earned her BA in English Literature from SUNY Plattsburgh. Visual arts crept into her life in subtle but persistent ways– jewelry, handmade cards, hand-painted T-shirts, and commissions from friends. This eventually led to a larger body of work that resulted in a series of gallery shows beginning in 2002. Her work encompasses various mediums, sizes and themes, yet Les’s style and edge are ever-present.
She has displayed at the Council on the Arts for Clinton County, the Y-Gallery and BluSeed Studios in Saranac Lake, The Lake Placid Center for the Arts North Gallery, The Gallery d’Arts Contemporains, Montreal, and Regents in New York City. She was also a member of the Stoneybrook Gallery in 2013. She has been featured in the magazines While You Were Sleeping (Feb/Mar 2004) and Montreal Serai (1998-2001), and has also illustrated for the Plattsburgh Press Republican. She was a featured artist on the Mountain Lake PBS show Arts Express in January 2003.
