Saranac Lake ArtWorks announces a convergence of Adirondack “arts” on Friday August 13th: Literary, Fine Art, & Music. BluSeed Studios starts the night with a book reading by Christopher Shaw at 6 pm. (https://www.bluseedstudios.org/event/153626/the-power-line-reading-by-chris-shaw). The author will read from “The Powerline” – which the Schenectady Daily Gazette website described as “taking readers on a journey to Lake Aurora and Saranac Lake and through time, going back to the years following World War I. It weaves together fictionalized memories of longtime residents with well-known regional landmarks and highlights how much the area has changed.” The reading starts at 6 pm, the admission fee is $10/person, and there will be time for questions and answers.
In the BluSeed gallery space, “Three Perspectives” is on display. (https://www.bluseedstudios.org/collections/164032). It is a special exhibit by 3 veteran Saranac Lake area Adirondack artists: pastel painter Diane Leifheit, plein air oil painter Nancy Brossard, and oil painter Stephen Horne.
Then with just a 15 minute drive to Paul Smiths, the VIC is hosting a 7 pm concert by well known Adirondack performers. (https://pscvic.square.site/product/concert-dan-duggan-and-peggy-lynn-8-13-21-7-8pm-/589?cp=true&sa=false&sbp=false&q=false&category_id=15). It’s a little tight and you might miss part of the beginning – but well worth it. From the VIC email newsletter, “Join regional treasures, Dan Duggan and Peggy Lynn, when they take the VIC stage. Come out for an evening of songs, stories and laughs”. Admission is $10/person.
This is an amazing convergence of Adirondack art, music and literature that rarely happens all on one night and for just $20 total.
