The Widlund Gallery at Tannery Pond Center Presents

The Guild of Adirondack Artists’ Show

Thru July 13, 2024
Reception Friday, June 14, 5 – 7 pm

Founded in 1973 in the Glens Falls area, the Guild of Adirondack Artists has met regularly throughout the years to discuss art-related issues, to hold workshops and demonstrations, to plan group exhibits, and to encourage high standards for works of art while strengthening the rapport between the artists and the community.

As the group became larger and less centered in Glens Falls, the meetings were held in studios and homes on a rotating basis. That continues today with thirty members from Saratoga, Washington and Warren counties.

“Adirondack musician creates waltz to honor retiring NCPR host Todd Moe”

As we mentioned in the last edition of ADK A&E’s e-News, NCPR’s Todd Moe has retired (as of Friday) after 25 years. One of Todd’s core values has been to uplift the voices of the poets, makers and creatives of the North Country that too often fly under the radar. One of them reached out to NCPR to share a special message and gift with Todd:

“Todd! Dan Duggan here!”

Musician Dan Duggan, of Lake Clear, is known for sharing his passion for the hammered dulcimer at workshops throughout the region and playing alongside his wife, Peggy Lynn, and longtime musical collaborator, Dan Berggren, in their group, Jamcrackers.

“I know I speak for many of us regional musicicians who so appreciate all that you’ve done. It means the world to us. Your joy and enthusiasm for life is infectious, and will be greatly missed in our mornings. I know how much you love to waltz, so I wrote a waltz for you in honor of your well-deserved retirement and aptly named it, “One Moe Waltz.”

You can read the full story and listen to “One Moe Waltz” HERE.
