The 21st Annual Saranac Lake Third Thursday Art Walk Season
The Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Saranac Lake ArtWorks, is pleased to announce that the Saranac Lake Third Thursday Art Walks will start its 21st annual season on June 20th. With more than 60 participating artists and businesses, this year’s season is ready to continue to make a difference in the visibility and perception of Saranac Lake as a community with a vibrant arts scene.
The Third Thursday Art Walk season will begin June 20th and run from 5pm-7:30pm along Main St., Broadway, Woodruff St., Bloomingdale Ave, Church St., and Cedar St. in Saranac Lake. More than 30 artists are paired with sponsoring businesses and organizations, demonstrating that the area is a great arts community and a fun place to shop, too. These artists encompass every medium imaganibale. Musicians, writers, jewelry makers, painters, crafts people, wood carvers, the list goes on and on.
Both the Chamber and Saranac Lake ArtWorks would like to recognize Tim Fortune for his 20 years of service to the art community as the lead organizer and champion of the Art Walks. His leadership, passion, and positive disposition has enabled the event to grow into one of the highlights of the summer season. As Tim transitioned out of his responsibilities, the Chamber and Saranac Lake ArtWorks have coordinated this year’s season together.
The Art Walks run from 5pm-7:30pm on June 20th, July 18th, August 15th, and September 19th. The mission of the Art Walks is to stimulate business, draw attention to downtown Saranac Lake and to encourage community spirit through the presentation of visual, performing, and literary arts by artists who live and work in the North Country.
