New York State Museum announces Seneca Ray Stoddard exhibition

The New York State Museum presents an exhibition showcasing the works of Adirondack photographer and conservationist Seneca Ray Stoddard. On view from June 29 through February 24, 2013.

The exhibition includes over 100 of Stoddard’s photographs, an Adirondack guideboat, freight boat, camera, copies of Stoddard’s books and several of his paintings. There also are several Stoddard photos of the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island. These and other items come from the State Museum’s collection of more than 500 Stoddard prints and also from the collections of the New York State Library and the Chapman Historical Museum in Glens Falls.

“This is the first time the State Museum has exhibited these remarkably important photographs from our extensive Seneca Ray Stoddard collection,” said Museum Director Mark Schaming. “It’s an enormously rich visual turn-of-the century record of the Adirondacks, as well as other magnificent regions of the state. Stoddard’s work continues to be an important resource in understanding the history and development of the Adirondack region.”

An online version of the exhibition is also available on the State Museum website at
