Tupper Arts reopens; public invited to participate in art project

Tupper Arts opened its doors on Wednesday, July 15, to host its 47th Annual Art Show and Adirondack Woodcrafts Show. The gallery, located at 106 Park St. in Tupper Lake, has been shuttered since mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, with multiple precautions in place to ensure the safety of visitors, vendors, and volunteers, the gallery is ready to reopen to the public.

The combined shows will feature the work of local artists and artisans for sale, including paintings in various mediums, photography, and a variety of unique woodcrafts. The gift shop will also be open, and visitors will be able to browse the local art and crafts for sale. Face masks are required, and the volunteers on staff at the Arts Center will ensure that the number of visitors inside the gallery is limited at any one time to allow for appropriate social distancing.  Hours for the show are Wednesdays through Sundays, 12-4 p.m. 

Tupper Arts is also sponsoring “Moose on the Loose,” a community art project. Local artists are invited to paint a plywood cutout of a moose to be auctioned off later this summer. Buyers will be asked to donate the moose to be placed in prominent business areas around Tupper Lake. Interested artists can pick up their moose at 106 Park Street in Tupper Lake any time the Arts Center is open (Wednesday through Sunday, 12-4 p.m.). Proceeds from the sales will go to programs and activities sponsored by Tupper Arts.

New Arts Center Adds To Uptown Tupper Lake

Sometimes, just a suggestion can spark change. Such was the case with Tupper Arts Director Louise McNally after seeing a request for someone to take the reins of the Tupper Lake Arts Show.

McNally, newly retired, thought it would be a good way for her to engage in the Tupper community. For the past two years McNally helped to organize and grow the Tupper Lake Arts Show. She acknowledges that she only helped add ideas to an existing format that worked, though she was largely responsible for moving the show from its home of 42 years, the Goff-Nelson Memorial Library, to a new location. » Continue Reading.
