Sept 23 – 25 will be the fifth annual free Artist at Work Studio Tour. Nearly 50 artists at locations in Wilmington, Jay, Onchiota, Rainbow Lake, Gabriels, Paul Smiths, Tupper Lake, Lake Placid, and Saranac Lake will be participating. Every year the artists create new artwork plus new artists are added. Most of the artists are voluntarily donating a percentage of their sales to the funds that have been established to aid the victims of Hurricane Irene flooding.
Painters, photographers, printmakers, carvers, sculptors, ceramic, fiber, a blacksmith, and mixed media and jewelry artisans will be on hand. New this year will be readings of original poetry.
You can find all the details on the tour’s website, or stop at Tour headquarters – the Adirondack Artists’ Guild Gallery at 52 Main St., Saranac Lake and pick up one of the free Studio Tour booklets (or download a pdf copy here). Online or in print you will find maps, examples of each artists’ work, descriptions, contact information and directions.
