Transformations: The Art of John Van Alstine

June 1 to September 4, 2021
Wood and Feibes & Schmitt Galleries

Adirondacks-based artist John Van Alstine (b. 1952) combines found twentieth-century industrial steel with natural elements to examine the relationship between man and environment.

A graduate of St. Lawrence University, his sculptures explore the relationship of the artist and their work, drawing parallels to Sisyphean mythology. Van Alstine's works have been exhibited throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe, and are included in major institutions, including The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Curated by Caroline Welsh, art historian and director emerita of Adirondack Experience.

Museum Hours:
Tuesday – Saturday: 10am – 5pm
Sunday: 12pm – 5pm
Closed Mondays and most national holidays.
