ARTS COUNCIL FOR THE NORTHERN ADIRONDACKS

WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO The Arts Council of the Northern Adirondacks champions the cause of artists and cultural organizations throughout the Adirondack region, working to keep this a vibrant home for the arts. As the region’s arts advocate, we connect new ideas to their realization, offering grants, technical support, and a network linking the creative community with its public. By promoting education and history, encouraging creation and interaction, the knowledge of work and spirit, both past and present, art celebrates the richness of expression and human endeavor. Our efforts are varied and far reaching, providing support and services, not only to artists and organizations, but individuals, constituents and tourists alike. It is our belief that the arts help build stronger communities and enrich personal experience. The 30th Annual Arts Directory Compiled and published by ACNA, the Directory features information on individuals, cultural groups, libraries, and a master calendar of their activities. The Directory is distributed free of charge in hundreds of locations and is easily accessible to tourists and residents of the North Country. The Master Calendar of Events including new listings, is accessible on the ArtsNorth website.

These three art exhibits travel from April through December, rotating to various locations in 4 different counties in the North Country.

ArtsNorth Coalition ACNA is the lead organization in a coalition of Arts Councils and Arts Centers supporting the creative spirit in the seven-county North Country region. The goal is to develop a higher profile for artists and arts organizations through marketing, promotion, workshops and dispersal of cultural resources and information. The results of the “Arts and Economic Prosperity Study” is located on the inside back cover. Information Referral Services The Arts Council maintains dozens of databases and files which contain information and statistics concerning artists, all cultural organizations in the fourteen-county North Country area, constituents, media and support service organizations, and a host of others. This information is maintained for use by the Arts Council and our Referral Services. PLEASE help to keep the database correct by informing us of 911 or other address changes. Cultural organizations can update their information and add their event dates directly on our website using a new interactive program. www.artsnorth.org The Saranac Lake Arts Committee A downtown re-vitalization initiative in Saranac Lake to make the Arts a focal point and attraction to the village. It began in 1994 with the acoustic renovation and a new sound system for the Harrietstown Hall Auditorium completed in 2002.

Arts Council

2010 – 2011 ARTS DIRECTORY A BRIEF HISTORY OF OUR ORGANIZATION: In 1980, seven Champlain Valley Cultural Groups gathered to form an organization to work jointly promoting the Arts in the region. The “Boquet Valley Arts Project” grew over the next three years to nineteen organizations throughout Essex County and its first project was to publish the Arts Directory. We compiled a master arts calendar which has now become the Northern Adirondack Arts Directory. In 1983, the group, with help from New York State Council on the Arts and the Essex County Board of Supervisors, declared itself the Essex County Arts Council and incorporated as a not-for-profit. The arts services expanded to include a regrant program, Arts Festival and a clearinghouse of Arts information. Over the years the Arts Council has grown to incorporate art exhibits, a performance series, along with arts services for individual artists and organizations.

In 1994, with the unfortunate demise of the Franklin County Arts Council, ECAC began providing programs and five regrant programs beyond Essex County and renamed itself the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks. One year later the ArtsNorth Coalition was formed, a network of Arts Centers and Councils in the seven county North Country region, headed by ACNA. In March of 2009 we began a new phase of the Arts Council. With a move down the road to the newly renovated historic buildings once known as the White Church and Beebe Hall, we will finally have a facility to offer year round performances, programs and exhibits in the Westport Heritage House and Visitors Center. With our original mission of marketing and promotion of the arts, we now provide services to 160 organizations in Essex, Franklin and Hamilton counties and network with over 300 in the Adirondack North Country.

ArtsNorth Coalition

ARTS COUNCIL FOR THE NORTHERN ADIRONDACKS

The ArtsNorth Coalition is a group of seven regional Arts Councils and Art Centers whose goal

is to help create public awareness of the value of Arts and Culture in the North Country. Whether you are attending a county fair or craft show, studying a piece of artwork or sculpture, listening to music, watching theater or dance, you are participating in the creative spirit. It is our belief that a thriving community offers its members the opportunity to recognize this spirit and to celebrate and learn about the heritage and culture in which they live. Through advertising, arts marketing and new technology we are committed to achieving these goals and making the Arts part of daily life.

The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks is the lead organization in this effort – won’t you join us!

2010 Cover Artist: Sally J. Smith “After workin as a successful watercolor painter for over twenty years I the calling to work more directly with the landscape. To be intimately immersed in its magic, rather than just trying to capture a moment on paper. The calling took her deep into the forests, fields and rivers of the area near her home in the Boquet river basin of the northern Adirondacks. Working mostly in the moment with materials found in nature, the finished pieces have a sense of unity and harmony–as if they belong to the land which formed them. And yet, there is a deep spiritual quality present in the works as well that always hints of worlds beyond our own. My art arises out of an alchemical blending of elements from the natural world, both in materials and location. Through delicate intuitive promptings as to form and design each unique creation is a true collaborative effort between myself and the environment. For me, there is a moment in the creative process, when all the hard work is finished, when the technical problems are resolved and for the first time I stand back and witness the sculpture that has just emerged from the land through my hands. This is a moment of profound joy for me when I feel that my life as an artist has purpose and meaning. When the sculpture is complete the next task is to take and process the photographs. I use digital Nikon cameras and process the images in Photoshop for greater clarity, colour and contrast if needed. However I am very careful that the images of the sculptures serve as a record of what my eye actually sees. While I may remove something from an image (a broken branch for instance) to improve the composition of the image, I am very careful that I do not add anything to the photographs that was not there when the image was taken. I want the photographs to record as closely as possible that magical moment when the work was freshly created in the environment that informed so much of its structure and character, and bring that sense of wonder and joy to the viewer.” You can see more of the artist's work at her website www.greenspiritarts.com

Upper Jay Art Center/Recovery Lounge Since 2001, brothers Scott and Byron Renderer have been turning their upholstery shop in Upper Jay into a performance space aptly called “The Recovery Lounge” where guests have been treated to concerts, plays, art exhibitions, happenings, poetry readings, films, and dance. Located on the banks of the west branch of the Ausable River, the old Model T factory has been converted into a funky space that celebrates creativity with a old fashioned underground vibe and wordof- mouth approach to advertising. Scott, who serves as Artistic Director, (required position by the IRS, now that they have established not-for-profit (c) (3) status) likes to keep things spontaneous. Byron, the older brother, likes to keep things mellow. The crowds found at any number of Recovery Lounge events are as diverse as any you will find in the Adirondacks. They encourage an everyone-is-welcome policy, insisting on a no-cover policy for music and surprisingly affordable ticket prices for the plays. Opening July 29, they will be presenting True West, by Sam Shepard- another award winning play to add to their growing list of dramatic presentations which include American Buffalo by David Mamet, Seascape by Edward Albee, The Fisherman & The Moor by Russell Banks, and Doubt by John Patrick Shanley to name a few. For more information about events go to upperjayartcenter.org or call 518-946-8315 and ask for Scott. He doesn’t let Byron speak on the phone. Business hours are 9-5, Monday- Friday for those interested in upholstery work.

Fort Ticonderoga & The King’s Garden Fort Ticonderoga has been offering the public 18t -century history, important collections and fun for over 100 years. Both the Fort and The King’s Garden offer tours, programs and family activities all season. Authentic, diverse, and engaging, the Fort played an important part in the founding of America. Built in 1755 by the French, the Fort was captured by the British and Provincial forces in 1759 during the French & Indian War. It was here in 1775 that Ethan Allen captured it from the British; the first victory of the American Revolution. It was cannon from Fort Ticonderoga that Colonel Knox hauled to Boston for George Washington’s Army. The British evacuated Boston as a result. The King’s Garden is on Fort grounds at the Pell estate. It dates to 1920 and is a beautiful brick-walled formal garden. Along with the Fort it has been totally restored and is an important part of the Fort’s offerings. Costumed interpreters demonstrate artillery and other skills. The Fife & Drum Corps play daily in July and August. A full calendar of events, including re-enactments, can be found at www.FortTiconderoga.org Open from May 20 to October 20 from 9:30 to 5:00 daily. 518 585-2821

Children under 12 $1.00 The first fortification on this point, by the French was begun in 1734 and called Fort St. Frederic. Between the years 1755 and 1758, the English attempted its capture, but it was not until 1759 that British Regulars and a command of Provincial troops ousted the French, captured the Fort and caused them to evacuate to Ille Aux Noix in Richelieu River. The British began work on a fortification, which, upon its completion in 1761, became the largest they ever built in North America. At the outbreak of the Revolution in 1775, the rebellious Colonials, captured the fort which had suffered a devastating fire in 1773. The British, under the command of General John Burgoyne occupied the fort in 1776. The site remained in British hands until the end of the war. The ruins of Fort St. Frederic, Fort Crown Point and the surrounding lands were donated to the State of New York in 1910. A modern visitor center has exhibits which interpret the French, British and American chapters of Crown Point’s history.

Mr. Sherman furnished the first books for the library. He left an endowment for the library, which now is not sufficient to support the library. The library also receives support from the Town of Moriah, the Village of Port Henry and the Clinton-EssexFranklin library system. The library has many items about the iron ore mining in the area.

P.O. Box 917 Peru, NY 12972 (518) 643-2892 adkartsined@charter.net www.adkartsined.org The Adirondack Arts in Education Partnership (AAIEP) was founded in January 2004 for the purpose of cultivating quality arts and humanities programs in North Country public schools throughout Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton and Warren counties. Grants are available through its Local Capacity Building Arts in Education Regrant program to support partnerships between North Country schools and local teaching artists or cultural organizations that focus on the integrated study of the arts and non-arts subjects. These projects involved direct collaboration between classroom teachers and teaching artists who use a co-teaching method to integrate the arts into the curriculum. (Application deadlines are in November with funded partnerships taking place the following spring.) The AAIEP also has established a regional Arts Education Roundtable made up of interested non-profit organizations, artists and schools that meets periodically to discuss how it can best meet the needs of area schools, teaching artists, cultural organizations and interested constituents through professional development and networking opportunities, outreach, technical assistance and Arts in Education advocacy. To request a grant application or for further information, please contact the AAIEP coordinator at (518) 643-2892. The AAIEP is a program of the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts and is supported with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State agency.

Robert Louis Stevenson Memorial Cottage 44 Stevenson Lane, PO Box 607, Saranac Lake, NY 12983 891-1462, www.robertlouisstevensonmemorialcottage.org, Email: pennypiper@verizon.net Hours: July 1 to Columbus Day Tuesday through Sunday, 9:30 to noon and 1:00 to 4:30 P.M. Closed Mon. Admission: $5. Open year-round by appointment only. It was a sunny October afternoon in 1887 when Robert Louis Stevenson arrived in Saranac Lake for his health. A victim of tuberculosis, the author placed himself under the care of Dr. Edward L. Trudeau. Stevenson and his family lived at the Baker Cottage where he did some of his finest writing, including "The Master of Ballantrae", “The Wrong Box” and the Scribner essays. The Baker Cottage, which Stevenson referred to as "the hatbox on the hill", was purchased by the Stevenson Society of America in 1925. It was renamed the Robert Louis Stevenson Memorial Cottage and became a museum to honor the author. Hundreds of items of Stevenson lore are on display including two of his toy soldiers from the "Land of Counterpane" fame.

Saranac Lake Winter Carnival 39 Main St., Saranac Lake, NY 12983 1-800-347-1992 (518) 891-1990 Photo: Mark Kurtz

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival, to be held February 4th-13th, 2011, is the longest running event of its kind in the eastern United States. It will be celebrating its 114th year. Begun as a one day event to break the monotony of the long Adirondack winter, the Carnival has grown into an eleven-day festival that includes sporting activities, dances, dramatic and musical productions, A full Court to reign over the Festival of community members and students from NCCC, Paul Smith’s College, and the local schools, two parades (one especially for children) and two sets of fireworks above the world-famous Ice Palace. In spite of the changes, the Carnival has retained the warmth, charm and camaraderie of a family and community celebration, replete with reunions of friends and family. Theme: Medival Mountains For further information, contact the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, 193 River Street, Saranac Lake, NY 12983. www.saranaclake.com

Adirondack Singers The Adirondack Singers, Inc., is a not-for-profit group whose goals are to provide choral music in two concerts: the first weekends in December and in May, at St. Bernard's Church in Saranac Lake. Special concerts are given throughout the quad-lakes region throughout the year: past performances included the spring convention of Eastern Star, "back-up" for Kenny Rogers at the Olympic Center, and choral accompaniment with the Lake Placid Sinfonietta. Admission to all Adirondack Singers concerts is by donation. A dinner-for-two gift certificate at an Adirondack restaurant is raffled at each concert. Membership in the Adirondack Singers is open to any adult or older student; no auditions are required, but the ability to learn the music and to perform in the concerts are necessities. Concert "seasons" run from late January through May, and from late September through December. Rehearsals are on Tuesday nights, from 7:15-9:15, at the Adirondack Alliance Church in Saranac Lake. Nominal dues are charged each season to sup-port the purchase of new music. Further information is available by calling Mrs.Linda Warner, President at 523-2238, or Mrs. Beryl Szwed, Treasurer, at 891-5008.

Newcomb’s Mountain Quilters P. O. Box 78 Newcomb, New York 12852 The mission of our organization is to promote an appreciation for the art of quilting and to act as a supportive resource to all members of our community. To further the art of quilting, we offer quilt programs for children and adults at the Newcomb Visitor Interpretive Center. Programs are planned for meetings which include workshops, demonstrations of new techniques, quilting gadgets, community service projects or a “work on your own project” evening. We also have a quilt show that is held every other year at the Newcomb Visitor Interpretive Center, the next show is Sept. 10-11, 2010. Our fund raisers are the Annual Craft Fair at the annual Teddy Roosevelt Celebration, our raffle quilt, which is hand-quilted by our members and the Annual Memory Tree Lighting at Christmas. We donate to many charitable organizations through the year, both locally and regionally, such as the Newcomb Vol. Fire Dept. local families in need, and a scholarship fund established for graduating high school seniors. Donations are made to the family shelter in Essex County, as well as to Hospice, the Veteran’s Clinic, and several other organizations. We meet the first Monday and third Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Newcomb Fire Hall.

The Newcomb Historical Society The Newcomb Historical Society was formed to collect, preserve, display, and interpret items of the town's history. We have recently been furnished with a building through the generosity of the Town Board and are located next to the Newcomb Fire Department on route 28N. Due to the fact that we are presently sorting and cataloguing years of collected material, the building is not open on a regular basis except for special events and during Teddy Roosevelt Weekend on the 10th and 11th of September 2010. We will establish some limited hours in the future. Individuals interested in researching our collection should contact Virginia Hall, president at 518-582-2865.
