AFS at The Sandy Hill Arts Center Wraps Monday, October 10th!
The Adirondack Folk School “Adirondack Craft Exhibit” at the Sandy Hill Arts Center (SHAC) is wrapping up soon. If you have not had a chance to see this uniquely AFS exhibit, now is your chance. Nearly 60 handcrafted items are on display in their 3rd floor gallery, located at 216 Main Street, Hudson Falls, NY. This one of a kind exhibit has items from our talented artisan-instructors alongside some of our students. This exhibit really illustrates the talent of our instructors – as artisans in their own right as well as how well they pass along the craft they love to their students by the quality of pieces on display.
Check out this video of the exhibit HERE.
The AFS exhibit at the Sandy Hill Arts Center is open daily through October 10th from noon until 5 pm daily and is free to the public.
