Welcome to Northwind Fine Arts

"Original Art made by Real Adirondack Artists"

"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.

Please Note!

NorthWind Fine Arts will be closed Monday, September 2nd.

We’ll see you soon!

“Coming into Being” by Lee Ann Sporn


In August, NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery will feature member artist, Lee Ann Sporn, and her collection of colored pencil drawings and abstract oil paintings entitled “Coming into Being”.  Her work is inspired by the metamorphosis and unique natural history of various Adirondack fauna.   Please join us for the opening reception Friday, August 2 from 5-7 pm.  Free and open to the public, light refreshments will be served.  The exhibit will be on display through September 2.


“My subjects include dragonflies, caddisflies and frogs but I focused largely on the delicate beauty of moth species found here in the Adirondacks with names like the sundew dart, the boreal pine looper, the pitcher plant borer and the rosy maple moth.   I wanted to capture the remarkable transformations that take place as these living things “come into being” and to showcase the connection between them and the plants on which they live. The style of my pieces was inspired by the seventeenth century artist and scientific illustrator, Maria Sybilla Merian.”

NorthWind Fine Arts has been featured in Opal Magazine (an international travel magazine) and in CNN Travel. We are a cooperative gallery and locals' favorite in the heart of the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks featuring original art made by Adirondack artists.  Gallery hours are daily, 11-6, Sunday 11-4, closed Tuesdays.  518 354-1875.
