Long Lake, NY, Jan 12, 2011 — Two artists who love winter and the outdoors will team up on a community art project in Long Lake this week. Adirondack native Matt Burnett and Scott Fuller will create illuminated snow sculptures in several locations.
The project, called "E-lumination", will include projected lights and images on the snow sculptures at night. The artists hope they'll challenge viewers to think about art, nature and technology. The exhibit will officially open on Friday night to kick off Long Lake's Winter Carnival.
Two years ago, Matt Burnett and Scott Fuller collaborated on a 50-foot spiral ice wall in Saranac Lake that was illuminated with tea candles. Burnett, known for his Adirondack landscape paintings, is also a member of "Saranac Lake Art Works," a group that promotes local artists and events. Todd Moe spoke with him about the Long Lake exhibit and creating large scale outdoor art installations.
