Plans are already underway for 2014, including a promise to add some major cash prizes to the Awards. Watch for updates next spring! Initially it was announced the event would be Aug 14-17, but that did not coincide with the 3rd Thursday ArtWalk, so it has been moved back a week.

We will be offering some optional artist workshops and events on Aug 18 - 20 for those who would like to come for the entire week! Check back later for details.

Nestled among the lakes and mountains of the Adirondack Park in northern New York state, Saranac Lake has an abundance of charming village scenes, the Saranac Lake "River Walk", and is surrounded by panoramic mountain views, rivers, lakes, ponds, scenic forest locations, rustic lodges, and small farms. Everyone can find interesting subject matter or scenic views. Experience the Adirondacks like the 19th century Hudson River painters did! Spectators welcome!
The Adirondack Artists' Guild, 52 Main St., will again be event headquarters and the source of information for the event. A Show & Sale of works created during the weekend will be held on Sunday afternoon from 12 - 4 in the Town Hall on Main Street.
