Adirondack Seasons: Old As Time
In the third collection of his work, artist Michael Ringer leaves the St. Lawrence River temporarily and shows us his version of the Adirondack Mountains. There is no question that Ringer is in awe of the mountains. No sanitized or romanticized views here; through his eyes we see an ancient wilderness, characterized by rugged terrain, unspoiled lakes and peaks that stand as silent sentinels, witness to centuries of evolution in this special place. Ringer's paintings often depict this untamed world, by turns harsh, reflective or peaceful. Ringer states "It can be as nasty as it is peaceful, but anyone who loves the Adirondacks would have it no other way,".
