On June 24th, from 5 to 7 pm, owners of The Adirondack Cheese Company, are welcoming View arts center members and the public to a cocktail reception, open house, and wine tasting event at their great camp on Fourth Lake, the Albedor, to benefit the Old Forge-based View arts center.
Monk Rowe, Utica area jazz performer, will provide musical entertainment, and Bremer’s Wine & Liquor will be sponsoring the wine tasting. Food sponsors include The Woods Inn, Great Pines (formerly the North Woods Inn), the Big Moose Inn, and the Seventh Lake House. Besides food and spirits, guests will be welcome to tour the 17,000 square foot Albedor house and its grounds and boathouse.
Built in 1927 by a wealthy New York City family, the Albedor comprises a three-story main house, carriage house, boathouse, and several cabins located on 900 feet of Fourth Lake waterfront. Like other Adirondack great camps, the Albedor allows visitors a glimpse into history – the unique architecture that emerged from British and American Craftsmen movements plus the luxury enjoyed by its early 20th century owners – and a chance to enjoy the natural setting.
Founded in 1951, View is a year-round, multi-arts center. Performances at View include live theatre, music, dance, and film, and the center offers a broad catalog of workshops, including the fine arts, regional crafts, such as basketry, and ceramics in its state-of-the-art pottery studio.
Tickets for this event are $60, or $50 for View members, and are available here.
