The exhibit, Woodlands and Water: Paintings of Meaningful Places, is a collection of oil paintings by Jamesville artist Diane L. Menzies. The paintings in this exhibit are based on scenes near Menzies’ home and in the Adirondack Mountains. While Menzies’ derives her subject matter from her own experiences, it is her intent that viewers bring their own histories and imaginings to each painting. In this way, each of the images has several different stories to tell.
