“How I see the Adirondacks,” is the theme by fine arts photographer Carl Rubino in his upcoming show at the Lake Placid Public Library. All are invited to a free reception for the opening from 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, November 16.
The exhibit will encompass the past five years of Rubino’s work which includes shimmering reflections on a beaver pond, raging rivers, trees that look like paintings and naturally occurring abstracts in stunning colors. His works vary in size from huge to note card. Rubino says that when he was five years old, his mother played classical music and told him if he closed his eyes he would be able to “see” the music. “That has made all the difference in the way I see the creative world,” he says.
Rubino’s photos have appeared in Adirondack Life, and are part of the permanent collection at The View in Old Forge. He has had solo shows in Burlington, VT and recently had two large works chosen for the Adirondack Juried Art Show at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. He also teaches for the Adirondack Photography Institute. Samples of his works may be seen at carlrubino.photoshelter.com.
The show will remain at the library’s Guy Brewster Hughes Gallery until the second week of January. The LPPL is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. There is never any admission charge.
