Adirondack Heart exhibit honors photographer John Radigan


OLD FORGE — Some of the many works by nature photographer John Radigan are on display in the series, “The Adirondack Heart,” at View, the Center for Arts and Culture. The exhibition will run through July 24.

In the gallery you can view works by John Radigan throughout his career. Take home a poster or the book John Radigan created. This exhibition was put together in collaboration with the Radigan Family and friends of John Radigan. Throughout the gallery friends and family share memories of John.

“John brought a thoughtful approach to landscapes,” shares fellow photographer and friend, Mark Bowie.

“He used impressionistic techniques for presenting them in abstract ways, with the intent of conveying a feeling rather than a straight documentary rendering. Through that, he taught me new ways of seeing and communicating. And it took my craft to another level. I’m forever grateful for that, and his friendship. John’s style of abstract expressionism wasn’t always greeted with enthusiasm — by other photographers or commercial outlets. Students were certainly intrigued by it, and wanted to try it, but weren’t ready to fully devote themselves to this ‘niche.’ Magazine editors found his work artistically innovative, but maybe not best suited to their commercial audience. Over time, things changed.”

View is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Gallery Admission is $10, free for View Members. View is located at 3273 Route 28. For more information, go online to, or call 315-369-6411.
