Buy art to save farms – that is what your purchase at Landscapes for Landsake will do. Since 1990 the Agricultural Stewardship Association has worked to accomplish a singular mission: protect the farms and forests, rich soils and agricultural landscape in Washington and Rensselaer counties for future generations. In that time, ASA has managed to conserve over 30,000 acres on 170 properties. For the last 21 years, a significant source of funding has come from Landscapes for Landsake Art Sale and Exhibition, a celebration of the land by our community of local artists.
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 conservation work. This year’s exhibition features the work of 68 artists. Approximately 300 works of art will be displayed in the barn at Maple Ridge and over 650 works will be available on www.LandscapesforLandsake.com. Many of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work during the in-person event on October 7 and 8.
The in-person sale opens to the public on Saturday, October 7th from 12 to 5 p.m. in the historic barn at Maple Ridge. Admission is $10. Drop-ins are welcome or you may reserve a ticket in advance. The gallery is also open from 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 8th free of charge. Wine will be available by the glass on Saturday.
The online sale will launch on October 7 at 7 pm and continue thru October 31 on www.LandscapesforLandsake.com. The website features elegantly designed collections from each artist, bios, videos and so much more, accessible from the comfort of your home.
This year's featured artist is Eden Compton. Her painting, Spring Evening in Easton is featured on this year's marketing materials for the event. Eden says, "While my extensive travel has sparked an interest in different types of subject matter ranging from rural landscapes to rainy cityscapes to market scenes, my work is an attempt to synthesize memory painting based on observation with my plein air studies. It begins with sketches and drawings done on location and then completed in the studio where I can spend more time developing the concept of the painting. I prefer visual expressions of poetic concepts rather than literal interpretations of a scene. I am currently exploring a more contemporary expression of traditional subject matter in my work". Eden is currently based in Saratoga Springs where she owns and operates a fine art gallery and has a teaching studio where she offers private classes and a variety of workshops in pastel, oil and gouache. Spring Evening in Easton is 6" h x 6" w and is a gouache.
