Adirondack A&E e-News # 227
We are proud to announce a wonderful new partnership between ADK A&E and Saranac Lake ArtWorks!
Through this partnership, the ADK A&E Event Calendar is now part of the ArtWorks website (you can see it HERE).
This means that visitors to the Saranac Lake ArtWorks who are looking for events to attend will not only see all the excellent ArtWorks events and ArtWorks-member events, but will be able to view arts-related events throughout the entire Adirondack/North Country region.
This arrangement is great for both parties: ADK A&E takes on the considerable work of maintaining and updating the Calendar, enabling ArtWorks to do what it does best, promoting artists, galleries, cultural organizations and arts-related businesses in this incredible place we all call home.
It also helps to further spread the word about ArtWorks’ amazing activities among A&E subscribers, as more people who are interested in the Adirondack arts scene will be exposed to ArtWorks events. At the same time, the arrangement helps us defray some of the costs of producing ADK A&E and is a help to our budgetary planning. Our aim is to always keep ADK A&E free of cost for our followers.
If you or your organization wants to learn more about partnerships with ADK A&E, by all means drop us a note and let’s chat about it. We’re friendly and there’s no obligation. We’re at email@example.com.
In the meantime, let’s celebrate Saranac Lake ArtWorks. Visit their beautiful new website HERE.

Sidewalk Signing Event with Bernard C. Melewski
Saturday, May 20, 2023, 1 – 3 pm
Mr. Melewski will autograph copies of his book Inside the Green Lobby: The Fight to Save the Adirondack Park.
Inside the Green Lobby recounts the behind-the-scenes efforts, both at the State Capitol in Albany and the halls of Congress, of a lobbyist for a major environmental advocacy group. Bernard C. Melewski worked to save the six-million acre Adirondack Park from twin threats to its future: the devastating damage from acid rain and the sudden breakup of massive private land holdings that had been intact for almost one hundred years.
Mr. Melewski is an environmental attorney, organic farmer, and farm winery owner in Altamont, New York.
