Current 2nd Floor Gallery Exhibition : Judith Aratoli Tully


NCA is a  non-profit organization that functions on the foundation of volunteers and one of volunteers is our current President, Judith Aratoli Tully.  This exhibition showcases her talents as a visual artist. 

Judith’s Mission Statement:
The creative process is very individualistic. What inspires artists is a personal journey. My inspiration is derived from the vista of the North Country. Colors and shapes have always intrigued me. It is my hope to reveal beauty through my drawings and paintings. I take great joy in sharing my vision

Judith’s Bio:
Judith Aratoli Tully graduated from SUNY Farmingdale with an Associate’s Degree in  Advertising Art and Design and then continued her education at Adelphi University, earning both a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master’s Degree in Art Education.

After completing her education, she taught aspiring young artists on Long Island for thirty-four years. Nurturing the students of Longwood High School in the disciplines of painting, drawing and interior design was her passion. In 2007, upon retiring from a well lover career, she moved to the North Country. Relocating to the Adirondacks enabled her to fulfill her dream of painting and drawing the colors and shapes of these magnificent vistas.

In addition to capturing the light of the North Country in oils, gouache and pastel, Judith has painted murals in Saratoga Springs, worked closely with the National Dance Museum and has done a variety of commission work.

Moving to the North Country  also provided Judith with additional opportunities working with  several local art groups . Her main emphasis , however, was North Country ARTS. She has coordinated the Youth Visions program which recognizes the talents of high school students from the North Country and served on the Board of Trustees on several committees. She has served as President of North Country ARTS for the past three years and upon the completion of her tenure will continue to work  closely with the members of NCA.

Keri Dudek 


 Artist and educator,  Keri Dudek will exhibit her paintings in
North Country ARTS first show of 2021 at Second Floor Gallery. Living in Saratoga Springs, Keri
has a degree in Art Education and pursues a career as an artist as well as an art educator. Keri
paints in both watercolor and oils, and her inspirations are nature, memory and everyday
objects and people.
As a child, Keri spent time on the Long Island beaches searching for what she calls “treasures
in the sand.” She notes that the beach always changes; color, sky, sand textures are constantly
altering providing the artist with much inspiration in the fluidity of natural forms.
With painting people, Keri is attracted to the subject at work, engaged in everyday activities
essential to earning a living or caring for a home. For these paintings, Keri likes to use soft
colors and textures to capture a certain magic in normal life.

Due to continuing Covid restrictions, there will be no reception

Nancy DiDonato Exhibition


Awakening A Photography Exhibit

NCA’s virtual City Hall Gallery for the April 5 to May 14 exhibit features the work of Nancy Didonato.

Throughout most of her artistic career, Nancy has focused her efforts on the fiber arts and is an award-winning quilter, having exhibited at Old Forge’s “The View” Arts Center and at Blue Mountain Lake’s “Adirondack Experience.” When she and her husband moved to Trout lake, however, and to a home they built themselves, Nancy grew to love the sunrises and took up photography to capture their beauty. She admits that her technical knowledge of photography is limited, but that limitation inhibits neither her artistic appreciation of sunrises nor her love for them. Several of her photos have been juried into exhibits.

Last year she set a challenge for herself: to take a sunrise photo a day for 366 straight days. And she did. The results of this challenge comprise the City Hall Virtual Gallery’s first spring exhibition of 2021. Please enjoy the photos!

Jonathan Pires Exhibition


Jonathan Pires brings his socially inspired paintings to NCA’s virtual City Hall Gallery for the February 22 – April 2 exhibit.

“Sensorium Synesthesia” is the term Jonathan uses to describe his art. With each piece he hopes not only to stimulate the senses but also to confuse them and cause the viewer to question what he/she is seeing. The forms in his paintings are both abstract and symbolic, more suggestive of form than realistic, more dark than light, more blurred than definite. 

Jonathan’s purpose in his art is to effect societal change. According to his view, the world’s resources benefit the few but no longer benefit the majority. His paintings seek a paradigm shift from the excessively materialistic to a paradigm in which people help each other to grow and fulfill our potential. 

More of his art can be seen here:

Holding It All Virtual Exhibition


Holding It All is a collaboration of Art and Literature, the creation of art inspired by the poetry of Bernice Mennis, in her book Holding it All. She is also an oll painter and teacher whose poetry has also inspired new musical compositions which will be performed at a later date.

“Poetry and art often “speak” the same language, sharing a “landscape” of the senses– of images, texture, color, imagination– of forms that allow us to give form to feelings that are layered, complex, deep. I feel honored that North Country Arts chose my book of poetry to touch and inspire art, and I am touched by the beauty, power, and depth of the artistic responses shown in this exhibit.” Bernice Mennis

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the NYS Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature and administered by the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
