    Summer Session I 
(June 18th- July 18th)
     Anne Vaccaro-Back
    I have been spending time at Blue Mountain Lake since I was 6 months old when my parents started bringing me for vacations and I have found that my fascination with the beauty of the lake and surrounding area keeps growing. Every year I continue to discover how sculptural the mountains are, how the texture of the trees changes with the seasons, and how the miracle of the light and colors of the water and sky reflect the depths of the water.  I don’t presume that my artwork depicts the reality of the area. I do hope that my use of the natural materials of bark and twigs in conjunction with acrylic paint inspires the viewer to look at the landscape in a new way.
