John Adamski, Finger Lakes Museum:  John is a retired residential architect and home builder and resides in Dansville. He completed his architectural training through an American Institute of Architects apprenticeship program after an earlier career in fish and wildlife management. John has been photographing wildlife and wilderness landscapes for more than 40 years. He is a four-time award-winning member of the NYS Outdoor Writers Association, and his articles and photographs have been published widely. He has written several books about wildlife. John conceived of the idea for the Finger Lakes Museum in 2008, and served as Board President until 2015.

Launched in 2008, The Finger Lakes Museum is dedicated to developing, supporting and inspiring stewardship of the Finger Lakes Region. Their vision is to create a place in a natural setting that provides educational experiences revolving around the fascinating cultural and natural history of the Finger Lakes Region.


Rick Godin, The W!LD Center:  Rick Godin is an Adirondack and Tupper Lake native whose career has spanned almost 40 years and nearly every continent. His business, Rick Godin Productions, has provided visual media for business, education and entertainment through the evolving forms of media since he began his own business in a commercial and portrait photo studio in Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 1971. In 1998, when the idea of building a natural history museum in Tupper Lake was proposed, Rick volunteered to help communicate its story to potential members, funders and visitors. Using his background in storytelling and the new media communication opportunities afforded by the Internet, he created videos and websites to educate interested people about the plans and mission of The Wild Center. Rick also worked closely with the design team to plan the vision for the media exhibits and the panoramas theater.

 The W!LD Center is located in Tupper Lake, NY; their mission is to ignite an enduring passion for the Adirondacks where people and nature can thrive together and offer an example for the world.



Three works will be designated best of show by the jurors based on composition, quality, and representation of the theme; winning artists will receive cash prizes in the amounts of $100, $50 and $25.

An additional People's Choice Award, a $25 gift certificate, will be given based on visitor votes during the opening reception.
