OLD FORGE — An exhibition of "monumental proportions and impact," "Adirondack View Finders: Farb, Bowie, Battaglia, Heilman" is comprised of work from the most influential Adirondack photographers Nathan Farb, Mark Bowie, Nancie Battaglia, and Carl Heilman.

View, 3273 State Route 28, celebrates the opening with a reception on Friday from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition will run from Dec. 3 ­ March 3, and will also include work by newer voices in Adirondack photography including Johnathan A. Esper, Lesley Dixion, and Clark Lubbs.

Exhibition admission is $10/$5 members and groups of 6+/Children under 12 free.

Stone sculptor Matt Horner will have work concurrently displayed, and "Teachers Turn: Instructors form the Adirondack Photography Institute" will open at the same time.

The photography is a vast assortment of different perspectives of the Adirondacks. Large format prints where viewers can practically smell the pines, hikers proud to have reached summits, wildlife captured taking flight, disorienting reflections in calm lakes, and fires roaring under time-lapsed stars streaking across the sky.

Mark Bowie will give a presentation about night-time photography, "Night Over the North Country" on the first morning of the exhibition Saturday at 11 a.m. Viewers "will experience the trademark awe and wonder of Bowie’s photography," View officials said. His presentation will give a view of the metaphors that he creates with the passage of time and the seasons, as well as a look at the unimaginable beauty that he is able to capture in an Adirondack night. Admission to Bowie’s presentation is $10/$5 members and includes exhibition admission.

Signup is under way for a Carl
Heilman Winter Landscapes Photo Workshop in February.
