This year’s juror is Ken Wiley. Watercolors and acrylics are his mediums. He earned his MA and MFA degrees in painting and drawing from the University of Iowa. In 1968, the year North Country Community College opened, he was hired to teach art and develop the art program, and he taught there for thirty-four years. In 2003, he was invited to join the Artists Guild and was a member until 2017. Stylistically, as an oil painter, Wiley has run the gamut starting with naturalism. In following years he produced semi-abstract and abstract paintings. Now and for more than thirty years, he works in watercolors and acrylics in a representational manner. Wiley taught the college’s photography courses and uses the camera as his sketchbook while traveling. His works have been accepted in national and regional shows in California, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, New York City, and many juried shows throughout the North Country where he has won numerous awards.

The Adirondack Artists Guild is a cooperative retail art gallery representing a diverse group of artists residing and working in the Tri-Lakes region of the Adirondack Park. The gallery is located at 52 Main St, Saranac Lake, 518 891-2615. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 10 until 5, and 11-3 on Sundays.



Fort Ticonderoga’s popular wintertime Fort Fever Series continues! From the comfort of your home, enjoy programs led by Fort Ticonderoga museum staff who share their latest fascinating research and cutting-edge discoveries.

This Wednesday, January 26 at 7 pm, join Vice President of Public History Stuart Lilie for an evening Fort Fever Series program.

He will present “Brace Yourself with Holsters” which explores the common details of 18th-century holsters and their rapid evolution on the eve of the Revolutionary War.

Though the term ‘holster’ evokes Saturday morning TV westerns, holsters have deep roots in the earliest days of cavalrymen using firearms on horseback. This program explores the 18th-century European terminology, construction, and decoration of holsters, as well as their evolution contemporary to Fort Ticonderoga’s epic story.

Online pre-registration is required HERE.

Classic slapstick comedy, juggling tricks and breathtaking feats of acrobatics shine in this new contemporary circus show!

We are all connected – only six degrees separate each one of us from anyone else in the world. Even the performers of this show are much closer to you than you think! In Six°, six envelopes contain six mysterious invitations for six strangers. All but one have arrived… Who is the sixth person, the missing connection? Might it be you?

Renowned acrobatic comedian Jamie Adkins and Cirque FLIP Fabrique unite in this new show which explores the restlessness of waiting, the intricate beauty of correspondence and unexpected encounters, and the joyfulness of laughter through classic slapstick comedy, juggling tricks and breathtaking feats of acrobatics.

FLIP Fabrique’s 6° teaser video HERE.

We’re sure you’ve noticed that we couldn’t seem to outright cancel the January Jams. We were holding out for numbers to drop but this pesky variant is persistent!

We love the January Jams and, although we are bummed to be calling them off, we also care about the health and well-being of every community member. It is with a tearful apology that there will be no Jams in January.

We are busy planning a full spring and summer of events and are even preparing a sprinkling of possible events this winter. Keep your fingers crossed with us!
