LAKE GEORGE — “Living in Harm’s Way,” a solo exhibition by multi-media artist Kingsley Parker opens at Lake George at the Courthouse Gallery, corner of Canada and Lower Amherst Streets on Jan. 26. 

In his exhibition, Parker continues his decades-long research and concern with all the myriad ways that humans interact with and extract from the natural world. His works depict vulnerable environments: clear-cut forests, overfished oceans, bleached coral reefs, plastic pollution, and fishing villages where humans live on the margins of changing sea levels.

Using recycled materials, such as wooden door frames, Styrofoam, flocking, and other found objects, he creates poignant images and installations - a mix of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture - that address serious topics, but that are often balanced with humor.

The exhibition runs through Feb. 26. An Online Talk with the Artist takes place 4 p.m. on Jan. 29. In-person office and gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday 12 – 5 p.m., Saturday 12 – 4 p.m. 

This exhibition is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts; the Town and Village of Lake George; Price Chopper’s Golub Foundation; 518 Profiles; The Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust and LGAP members.
