The Art continues – post Labor Day!
Labor Day is here, and many of our area cultural organizations are wrapping up the whirl of summer events. BUT there is still much to do out there…including some exceptional art exhibits to be enjoyed. Here are a few that ECAC helped to support through 2022 CAP funding:
Adirondack Art Association, Essex, NY: The Adirondack Arts Association has been enjoying its new gallery space on Main Street in Essex – so much so that they are able to extend their season into the fall! On September 10-11, 17-18, 24-25 and October 1-2, 8-10, the Gallery will be open from 12 until 4 pm. (These are the Saturdays and Sundays from the weekend after Labor Day thru the October holiday).

Tahawus Center, Au Sable Forks: The exhibit “Journey” opens to the public on Saturday, September 10. Artists Heidi Gero and Carrie Plumadore are driven by curiosity, exploration, and discovery.
In the painted renderings by Gero of Adirondack places, people, and wildlife, viewers may recognize and share a meditative journey through time. Plumadore works exclusively with found, repurposed items, entwining them from ordinary everyday wear and use into intriguing, allegorical hangings. The Gallery will be open to the public 1-2:30 on Saturdays through October, and almost anytime by appointment. TahawusCenter@gmail.com.
