View the exhibit online!

The Gallery @ LPCA is temporarily closed to lessen risk for all of our art-loving community members. We hope to open with regular hours as soon as recommended by the CDC and the New York State government.

The LPCA's spring juried show, Inspired by Great Artists, pays tribute to the artists from any medium (not just visual arts) that have helped artists from the region on their creative journey. Using the work of Great Artists as inspiration, local artists are invited to create new work that displays a figurative, literal or thematic reinterpretation of their inspiration.

Leslie Rottner is an artist and workshop instructor living in Lake Placid, New York. Leslie has always been a “maker” but works primarily in analog collage. As a self taught artist, she uses an intuitive and thoughtful approach to transform often overlooked materials into a new visual story. Leslie's collage work is created with vintage papers, old books, type, and ephemera. She draws inspiration from the age and imperfections that these materials possess and creates art with a contemporary feel. Her work ranges from simple and contemplative to abstract and energetic. Leslie's work is currently in Gallery 46, in Lake Placid New York, and in private collections throughout the United States.
