A thriving arts scene

Saranac Lake is a magnet for creative individuals, which is why visitors can find art around every corner. Artists past and present have left their marks on our by painting, collaging, photographing, assembling, writing, and sculpting, and we are the better for it.

Start by taking a look in our galleries, restaurants, and shops and you’ll see an array of visual art pieces. Step outside and keep your eyes peeled — you’re likely to find a mural, sidewalk art, or art projects like a gigantic metal lawn serpent

Visual arts aren't the only players in town! Pendragon Theatre is an award-winning professional theatre and the only year-round professional repertory in the Adirondacks. They offer a full range of live and online performances like revived Broadway classics, family-friendly plays, and seasonal offerings. BluSeed Studios also offers virtual events, contemporary art shows, and much more.

Whether you want to take home the memories made from seeing a professional production at one of our theaters or take home a new piece from one of Saranac Lake's painters, we're certain you'll appreciate being able to add some art to your trip the same way the locals appreciate living near it.
