SPOTLIGHT: Breaking Boundaries and "Frankenstein"

An art exhibit in Lake Placid could change the way you look at city scenes and the natural world. At least that's the hope of the creators of the "Breaking Boundaries" exhibit at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. It features the work of two very different artists, but the pieces work well to create an effective sense of unity and flow in the exhibit space. You'll see ceramic works by Rainbow Lake, New York resident Peter Shrope, and the city and nature prints of Connecticut artist Zemma Mastin White. The exhibit lasts until July 29. I am also very excited to see the high definition presentation of Frankenstein. Last summer when I was in England, I kept hearing about this fantastic production of Frankenstein on the London stage, but it was sold out so I couldn't see it. Now we get two chances to see this critically acclaimed version of Mary Shelley's gothic tale, directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle.
