Malta League of Arts To Host "Art Attitudes"

MALTA – The Malta League of Arts is hosting its sixth annual “Arts Attitudes Exhibit and Sale” from

September 17 through 20, at the Round Lake Auditorium in historic Round Lake Village. The four-day event highlights a wide range of 40 local and regional artists.  The exhibit’s opening night, Thursday, September 17, will feature a wine reception with live music and a live auction. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday the exhibit is free and open to the public.  All art work will be for sale to benefit the Malta League of Arts Scholarship Fund.

“Arts Attitudes” will exhibit paintings, photography and sculpture. According to the Malta League of Arts, the response from artists was overwhelming, filling every available space early in the planning process.  In addition, the show includes a collection from one featured artist.

This year’s featured artist is Anne Diggory, known for her combination of accurate detail with expressive painting and strong abstract structure. While the majority of her works are inspired by the Adirondacks of New York State, painting locations also include Alaska, Arizona and various seashores, as well as her own city of Saratoga Springs. Diggory’s works have been exhibited at The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, The Blue Mountain Gallery in New York City and The Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake. She has also been featured in the Adirondack Explorer, Saratoga Living and the photography issue of Adirondack Life.

Johanna Turano received the Malta League of Arts $500 scholarship at Ballston Spa High School’s Senior Awards Night in May. She was selected by the art department as a senior student who “demonstrates a passion for the visual arts and one who also exemplifies the characteristics of perseverance and commitment as demonstrated by a creative and competitive portfolio.” Johanna has been accepted to the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program at SUNY New Paltz, majoring in graphic design with a possible photography minor.

Thursday’s opening reception features champagne, hors d’oeuvres and live music.  A live auction will take place at 7:45 p.m. Up for bid are Proctors theater tickets, gym memberships, a Florida vacation condo, a NYC apartment weekend rental, tickets to  Live with Kelly and Michael in NYC and much more. Tickets for Thursday’s opening and fundraising reception are $20 at the door.

Entertainment will be provided by HEARD featuring Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius on keyboards and vocals, Jonathan Greene on woodwinds and Bobby Kendall on bass.
