Banner of Guy Brewster Hughes Art Gallery


Guy Brewster Hughes was born in Plattsburgh, NY Nov. 23, 1928. He was influenced and encouraged in his artistic efforts by his great aunt Julia Brewster, herself a noted watercolorist.

As a watercolorist, Hughes exhibited in Los Angeles, Boston, Buffalo, at various Vermont locations, and locally. Mr. Hughes died on June 11, 1992.


Hughe's great wish was that this library, which he loved, should one day have a public space devoted to works of Adirondack artists. This gallery is the fulfillment of that wish. We invite the public to visit and experience the wide range of talented artists who show at the Gallery on a regular basis.

Lake Placid Elementary School, K-2nd grade student artwork is now on display
in the Guy Hughes Art Gallery through the month of December.

Please join us for a reception with LPES Art Teacher, Rebecca Philion, Thurs, Dec. 6th from 5:00 - 6:30 PM

    Fine artists in our region are fortunate to have free gallery space to show their work.
    The Library encourages and supports the arts by welcoming artists who have years of experience as well as those who are just beginning to emerge in the field.
    The styles are varied and exciting. The collection is ever-changing.

    Residents and tourists alike benefit from having this cultural venue on Main Street.
