View, the Center for Arts and Culture in Old Forge, New York, will house a powerful solo exhibit titled Speaking of Seasons: Pastel Paintings by Diane E. Leifheit from November 2nd to January 11, 2020.


Diane E. Leifheit is a painter of pastel, working in summer en plein air and in winter in the studio. She has seen what Adirondack winters can create since 1974 — deep grey colorless days, brilliant blue shadows with a low sun, sideways snowfall, and sub-40-degree cold.


She has been participating in plein air festivals since 2008 and has received awards for her plein air work — most recently at The Hyde Collection Plein Air Festival in Glens Falls. Diane’s work has been exhibited regionally and nationally. She is a member of the Adirondack Pastel Society, Saranac Lake Art Works, and The Strand Art Center Cooperative Gallery.


View is located at 3273 State Route 28 in Old Forge, New York. To learn more about View programming, visit ViewArts.org, or call (315) 369-6411.
