Dansville ArtWorks summer exhibit features 15 highly talented individuals, including Dansville’s own John Adamski. Jay Pullman and Roger Kornbau also have first-time pieces in the gallery for this open-themed exhibit.

Board President Nicole Alioto commented, “Some of the favorite past exhibiting artists committed to our summer exhibit, including Mark Corwine, Jackie Donohue, Samantha Davis, Carol Deltoro, Leanne Holt, Jennifer Luce, Jeff Miller, Cathy Shepard and Mary Skillings. Three new artists ‘discovered us’:  Elaine Hardman, Grant Lounsbury, and Nadean Summers. Then the stars aligned to feature a retrospective of John Adamski’s photography, followed by Jay and Roger signing on. It’s an eclectic showcase of incredible talent across many mediums and not to be missed! We are proud and delighted to share it with the community.”

John Adamski has photographed wild animals and birds from the backwoods of upstate New York, which is home, across the United States and into southern Ontario, Canada. His photography and wildlife articles have appeared in the Democrat & Chronicle, Life in the Finger Lakes, and Adirondack Life. John’s earlier careers included fish and wildlife management at Whitney Park (Adirondacks) and architecture. In the past decade, he promoted (then developed) the concept of a Finger Lakes Museum that took a foothold emotionally and physically, resulting in the Finger Lakes Museum and Aquarium in Branchport, New York.
