My family likes to take part in art walks and gallery openings in and out of the Adirondack Park. We enjoy the arts and with a beautiful backdrop like the Adirondacks, what better place is there to explore art and nature?
This weekend area artists open their doors for the monthly Saranac Lake Artworks Studio Tours. With live demonstrations, artists create and showcase their original work while visitors take part in self-guided tours. Each month the list of artists alters slightly. The upcoming studio tour days will be July 27-29, August 31-September 2, September 28-30, October 27-29, and November 30-December 2.
Another option, though it isn’t a formal tour, is the Adirondack Regional Art Trail. With listings broken down by geographic area, it’s easy to pull together an informal driving tour of area artists and organizations. The website brings together off-the-beaten path artist with local galleries, museums, and exhibits. It’s well-deserved recognition to the variety of art and culture the Adirondacks offers.
There is so much talent and so much to see. Enjoy!
Note that typically outside organized tours and open house events, hours can vary at each artists’ studio. Check the schedule to make sure your favorite (or soon to be favorite artist) will be available for a visit.
