"Our mission is to provide a venue for the display and sale of art work by Member artists 

and to promote development of the arts in the region."

We are a cooperative gallery of artists living in the Adirondacks, and the works of all members are exhibited in the gallery continually, 

in addition to showing the work of a Featured Artist each month.  

NorthWind Fine Arts is open to accepting artists who are willing to devote their time and experiences to the successful workings of the gallery.




NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery is pleased to exhibit the work of last year’s 

juried show winner, 

Ruth Crotty. Ruth is a native of New York State and received a BFA from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA in 1969.  She has been painting and exhibiting in upstate New York since 

Ruth describes her beautiful plein air paintings as "... a response to the environment around her, specifically a time and place.  These soft days have a magic all of their own, with saturated color juxtaposed with neutral grays.  With changing light, nothing ever looks the same twice. These nuances of light and their impact on color and texture are what intrigues her, inspiring her to capture them in a painting. 

She wants to pass on to the viewer the mood created, the thing that made her want to make the painting, to share a time and place."   Please join us at the gallery for a welcome "summer-in-March" respite. 

The exhibit will be on display through March 31st.
