Galleries and visual arts in Saranac Lake

Our Cool art scene!

Every season is the perfect season to visit one of Saranac Lake's many galleries! When warm weather settles into the region many of our artists head outdoors to paint the gorgeous Adirondack landscape. As the colder air takes hold, there's nothing more delightful than warming up with a cup of cocoa as you browse our many galleries and watch our artists at work.

Keep an eye out for our traditional Friday gallery openings, where new work is unveiled every month. Check this blog post to learn more about how to have fun at the art opening.

Art everywhere

Our walkable downtown has many welcoming nooks and crannies. Our galleries delight and our shops beckon. Discover how our restaurants, banks, and even our hiking complexes make art a living and breathing part of this community.

Many of our shops carry local Adirondack handicrafts.
