It is a cooperative member gallery with 10 regional artists showcasing a wide range of media. The gallery moved into its new location, 11 Woodruff Street (formerly Ampersound) in downtown Saranac Lake in November, 2013.

Stop by to view the latest works by these Adirondack artists. There is a new featured artist or group exhibit each month, and the gallery hosts an opening reception (free to the public) on the first Friday of each month, from 5-7 pm. This is a great time to relax and meet the artists, and perhaps take home an original creation.
