MyChamplainValley (ABC 22/FOX 44) morning reporter Alaina Pinto (myChamplainValley, Facebook, Twitter) stopped by the Adirondack Art Association on Thursday, June 9 to discover firsthand why everyone is so excited about the new art season in Essex.
Alaina Pinto interviewed local photographer Jim Friday, focusing on a breathtaking panoramic view of the moon rising out of the Green Mountains over Lake Champlain. They discussed the best timing for photography and the wait for the perfect moments that is part of that art. His work can be found at jimfriday.com.
While interviewing Tim Palkovic, Alaina focused on a plien air painting he had done in oil of an Adirondack scene. They discussed what plien air painting is — being on location, standing, and painting an outdoor scene in the moment. His work can be found at the AAA gallery and the Plattsburgh Farmer’s Martket.
