Welcome to the Guild of Adirondack Artists.The GAA was founded in 1973 by a group of well respected artists in the Glens Falls Region of the lower Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. The membership consists of artists who wish to share in exhibitions, encourage high standards for works of art, while strengthening the rapport between the artists and our community. It continues to prosper with 24 continuous members today.
The bucolic Town of Hartford, New York is home to artist Janine
Having honed her skills as the art teacher at the Hartford Central
School for many years, she established “Crowfield Studio
and Gallery” in 2002.
Janine Thomas represents the people, places, and pets inhabiting
rural Washington County and the Adirondack foothills. Her realistic images combine
classic background tones to create visual works that isolate the unique
qualities of chickens, sheep, horses, cows, farm families and 4H kids. Her
chickens have become her agrarian trademark.
Saratoga images of race horses and riders are becoming a favorite
expression in the oil medium. Realistically rendered jockeys on their mounts
emerge out of muted backgrounds combining the dream of racing with the power
needed to win. Having owned four morgan horses, the breed
features prominentally in portraits of
show horses, driving horses and riders.
