An art exhibit conceived to celebrate the friendship of three artists, and their love of Adirondack waterways, has taken on a deeper meaning after one of the trio passed away. Painter Peter Hornbeck of Olmstedville, New York died of a cardiac arrest in December. His name is known among outdoor enthusiasts as a master boat builder and the creator of the Hornbeck Boat.
An upcoming art exhibit at Tupper Arts Center in Tupper Lake will also pay tribute to Peter Hornbeck. “Peter Hornbeck, Adirondack Artist, Boat builder, Environmentalist” opens July 29 and remains in the gallery until August 15.
