NorthWind Fine Arts
The Healing Wilderness




“The Healing Wilderness” is the theme of NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery’s upcoming juried show.  As the world recovers from recent tumultuous times, we invite visual artists to share artistic works inspired by the power of wild places to heal.


Our cooperative gallery is located in the heart of the village of Saranac Lake in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. Since the turn of the 20th century when the village became the birthplace of the fresh air cure for tuberculosis, the region has been revered for its healing powers.  


Selected works will be displayed in digital format at NorthWind Fine Arts Gallery during Saranac Lake’s “Winter Carnival” which is attended by thousands of residents and visitors annually.  Selected works also will be featured on our website and shared with our extensive social media audience.  Award-winning pieces will be showcased on North Country Public Radio’s virtual art gallery, the UpNorth Gallery.  


 The gallery is located at 11 Woodruff Street in Saranac Lake, New York, just 9 miles from Lake Placid.  Visit us at
