LAKE PLACID – The Lake Placid Center for the Arts announced Friday the opening of “Winter 46”, an exhibition featuring the photography of Jonathan Zaharek.

The public is invited to the opening reception Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Gallery @ LPCA, 17 Algonquin Drive, Lake Placid. The exhibition will run until July. The gallery’s regular opening hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and admission is free.

“Winter 46” brings to life the journey of emerging photographer Zaharek, who climbed the 46 High Peaks in just three months in the height of winter. This is the first time, to the knowledge of the LPCA, that anyone has documented the entirety of Winter 46 in high definition for the public.

The exhibit will also feature a collection of works depicting each of the 46 High Peaks by 46 different artists from the region, to celebrate the colors, contours and traditions surrounding the Adirondack Mountains.

Visitors can learn about Zaharek’s journey by browsing the collection in the order he traveled the peaks.

Inside the gallery, unvaccinated people will be required to wear a mask while masks are optional for vaccinated people. Outside, masks are optional regardless of vaccination status.
