Folkstore Artist Spotlight

The Folkstore Artist Spotlight (FAS) is a special showcase of work from a local artist or group of related artists. These exhibits highlight the local living traditions of the North Country through locally-made products which are on view and for sale in The TAUNY Center. The Folkstore Artist Spotlight Series also allows TAUNY to present a greater range of work by these local producers.   

Folkstore Artist Spotlight Exhibit:

Photographs by Dorothy Badger

Through September 28th

TAUNY’s current Folkstore Artist Spotlight exhibit features photographs by North Country native, Dorothy Badger. The color photos, taken between 1979-2006, capture spectacular views and beautiful scenes of the Northern Adirondacks and the St. Lawrence River Valley in all seasons. Dorothy Badger graciously donated a collection of nearly 750 photos to TAUNY to sell in the North Country Folkstore as a fundraiser. Thanks to this generous donation, we’re able to sell these beautiful photos at special prices. See a selection of Dorothy Badgers photographs on display in this exhibit and find a photo of a local scene to take home today.
