Summer Scenes by Sarah Jane Rodman
Come on in and see the exhibit. These paintings can be hung indoors or outdoors! We even have one hanging on the porch.

Artist’s Biography

Born in New York City, I have lived all over. My family has summered in the Adirondacks for five generations and I have a deep appreciation for the region.
As an artist, I create fine and decorative art and also host art workshops, including Plein d’Air gatherings at Lake George, where we gather to sketch favorite vistas, several of which are depicted in the pieces here in the Library. These art works are made to be installed anywhere. Who says art has to be hung on a wall in the living room? Why not on the side of a boat house or barn? My pictures can be hung inside or out!
My background spans the visual and performing arts. I am passionate about the value of art, history, and culture in community life and governance. In 2011-12, I led a community engagement project reconnecting Lake George, New York with the heritage of two of its overlooked artists, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz. There is a historic roadside marker now on Route 9N adjacent to where the couple lived for decades.
I recently earned a Masters in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Museum Studies from Harvard University. For my thesis, I wrote an academic paper documenting my plans for an original cultural history exhibition prototype telling the story of Truman Capote’s 1966 Black and White Ball and the encompassing 1960s era.
