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.
