Saranac Lake is the heart of the Adirondacks.  And the soul of Saranac Lake can be found in the arts.

From the days of the first explorers, artists have delighted in the Adirondacks’ natural riches. In 1837, the painter Charles Ingham accompanied Ebenezer Emmons on the first recorded ascent of Mt. Marcy. Artists of the Hudson River School, such as Thomas Cole, often painted scenes in the Adirondacks. Later in the 19th century, Winslow Homer portrayed the interaction of people and nature in his oils and watercolors, and Seneca Ray Stoddard recorded life in the wilderness through his photographs. In the 20th century, both Harold Weston and Rockwell Kent lived and painted in the Adirondacks. Twenty-first century artists are also attracted to this region – and Saranac Lake is home to many of them.

Art works in the Village of Saranac Lake, where we have several art galleries, a professional theatre, many live concerts and performances, the 3rd Thursday “Art Walks” during the summer, literary presentations, film festivals, the Plein Air Festival, Hobofest, and the ArtWorks Studio Tours . Visitors can find art events going on nearly every week of the year
