Live music will be featured by local band, Marie Marie and refreshments will be served.
Ledge Hill Studio Downtown is an eclectic business centered around ART. The atelier has a flowing art show of Carolyn Polly’s art and many other accomplished artists. We feature four ART OPENINGS a year spotlighting regional art, eclectic art, hand craft and functional art pottery, Adirondack craft, printed and photography cards.
The newest art and the art process is on display at the atelier. Carolyn Polly or one of the staff are most often making when you stop in. LHSD functions both as a personal art studio, a classroom space, a gallery and a gift shop.
We hope to cultivate interest, support emerging artists, and keep ART in the hearts of all those who pass through our doors.
