Bridges To Cross

A Photographic Exhibition by Mark Kurtz

September 26 through December 12, Opening Reception on September 26th from 5-8pm

For more than 20 years, Mark Kurtz has been providing Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, and the Adirondack region with outstanding photography.  In this exhibition, he shares with us his attraction to the bridge as metaphorical symbol that represents many things in philosophical contemplation.  Mark explains, “I’ve always been fascinated by bridges, their structure, their strength, their symbolism, their aesthetics, their history… their purpose.  Photographing them allows me to connect with these structures and think about what they represent.”
