Saranac Lake ArtWorks

 Climb a mountain, paddle a river, tour an art gallery! 


Saranac Lake ArtWorks is a collaborative group of individual artists, galleries, and organizations like Bluseed Studios, the Adirondack Carousel, and Pendragon Theatre - over 46 members in all. Our focus has been to use the arts to help promote our region, through group marketing and advertising efforts. 

Our galleries have monthly exhibit openings all through the year. Our members organize events like the Cabin Fever Film Festival in March, the 3rd Thursday ArtWalks in summer, the Adirondack Plein Air Festival in August, Hobofest during Labor Day weekend, and the Last Saturday “Artist at Work” Studio Tours in July, August and September. Bluseed Studios offers workshops and classes, live performance and exhibit opportunities. Pendragon Theatre is the only year round live performing theatre in the Adirondack Park, proving quality entertainment for over 30 years.

To obtain more information about ArtWorks, visit our website, stop in at the Cape Air office at 5 Broadway, where some of our members exhibit their work, and pick up a brochure, or stop in at BluSeed Studios where we have an office.
