Amazing Convergence of Adirondack Art, Music and Literature This Friday
Saranac Lake ArtWorks announces a Convergence of Adirondack “Arts” on Friday August 13: Literature, Fine Art and Music. BluSeed Studios starts the evening with a book reading by Christopher Shaw at 6 p.m. (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 Lake Saranac and through time, dating back to the years after the First World War. It weaves fictional memories of longtime residents with well-known regional landmarks and highlights how much the region has changed. Reading starts at 6 p.m., admission is $ 10 / person, and there will be time for questions and answers.
In the BluSeed gallery space, “Three Perspectives” is exhibited. (https://www.bluseedstudios.org/collections/164032). This is a special exhibition of 3 veteran Adirondack artists from the Saranac Lake area: pastel artist Diane Leifheit, outdoor oil painter Nancy Brossard and oil painter Stephen Horne.
Then, just a 15-minute drive from Paul Smiths, VIC hosts a 7 p.m. concert by well-known Adirondack artists.

It’s a bit tight and you might miss part of the start, but it’s worth it. Excerpt from the VIC e-newsletter, “Join the regional treasures, Dan Duggan and Peggy Lynn, when they take the VIC stage. Go 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 in a single night and for only $ 20 in total.
