SEE STODDARD’S WORK
ALBANY—”Seneca Ray Stoddard: Capturing the Adirondacks” is on exhibit in the Crossroads Gallery at the New York State Museum here until Feb. 24, 2013.
Stoddard was one of the first to capture the Adirondacks through photographs. He shared and promoted that vision to a post-Civil War audience that was beginning to have the means to follow in his footsteps. Soon, those footsteps became a flood of tourists.
Growing up in Wilton, Stoddard was no doubt inspired by the Adirondacks from an early age. Although Stoddard was not alone in marketing the Adirondacks, other commercial and competing photographers remain largely unrecognized today. Unlike many of his contemporaries, the tremendous scope of Stoddard’s work remained largely intact. The New York State Museum acquired the Stoddard prints in 1972.
NORTHVILLE—The First United Methodist Church at 301 S. Main St. here will hold the 65th annual Community Christmas Concert, “The Song of Christmas,” Saturday, Dec. 15, at 3 p.m.
