Adirondack Artists Guild Presents

Puddles: Jeanne Danforth Exhibit

Friday, May 3 thru Sunday, June 2
Opening reception Friday, May 3, 5 – 7 pm

Jeanne Danforth will be the featured artist at the Adirondack Artists Guild for the month of May.

She calls her show “Puddles” because it’s spring and the work is almost all water color. “Puddles” will kick off the 2024 summer season at the gallery, following a busy year and a short break for spring cleanup.

Jeanne is well known throughout the area for her evocative and luminous paintings of farms, animals and roadside scenes.

She writes “Season’s greetings! A return to exuberance, little green things, little fly-y things and greedy, damp little animals. Welcome come-hither blooms and broody mamas and haunting remembrances written in paint. Watercolors, of course……it’s the wet season, juicy with possibility, sap, and desire. So eat dessert first – little visual desserts!”

Poem Village Expands to Malone, NY and St. Lawrence County

Thru Sunday, May 19

Poem Village expands beyond Saranac Lake to Malone for National Poetry Month, bringing verse to the streets, enriching communities, and enhancing downtown areas.

This annual initiative, spearheaded by Adirondack Center for Writing (ACW), has become a cherished tradition in Saranac Lake, where poetry broadsides adorn shop windows, injecting vibrancy into the town during the typically drab mud season. Now, with the support of the Downtown Artists Cellar and SLC Arts, the poetry movement is poised to captivate Malone and beyond.

Residents and visitors alike are invited to take a leisurely stroll down Main Street in Malone, where over 250 poems are displayed, including works from more than 50 talented students of the Malone Middle School. These poems, penned by residents of the North Country, will bring literary charm to our streets.

The collaboration between ACW, the Downtown Artists Cellar and SLC Arts marks a significant expansion of Poem Village, spreading the joy of poetry across the North Country. In addition to Malone, the poetry broadsides will also grace shop windows throughout Saranac Lake and St. Lawrence County.

Join us in celebrating National Poetry Month as Poem Village inspires creativity and connections throughout the region.
