This year’s exhibition features the work of 61 artists. Many of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work throughout the weekend.
This year’s featured artist is Tracy Helgeson of Cooperstown, NY. Her work is greatly inspired by the landscape, as well as the barns, structures, roads and farm scenes that surround her home. "I often paint the same scenes over and over, deriving great comfort from portraying what is familiar as well as noting the small changes that occur over time in my environment. Yet within that framework of the familiar, the start of each painting brings me the exciting challenge of finding new ways to express what I see and feel," Tracy says.
Tracy strives for simplicity in her work; in color, form, composition, and subject matter. However, complexities inevitably find their way in via texture, handwritten elements and small bits of painted details. Her painting, “On Top of the Hill” is highlighted on posters and postcards throughout the region and at Maple Ridge. “On Top of the Hill was chosen as the featured work because it exemplifies the show's spirit. Tracy has an innate ability to take the ordinary and make it feel magical,” says Klara Varosy, curator of the show.
Landscapes for Landsake is the region’s largest art-buying event of the season and ASA’s largest fundraiser of the year. Participating artists generously donate 50% of their proceeds to support ASA’s farmland conservation work.
The 2022 exhibition is curated by Klara Varosy, a resident of Salem, NY.
