Shop local, shop for art!

In a town full of artists, artisans, writers, and more creative individuals who simply can't be defined (in a good way), there is no shortage of brilliant art to view, enjoy, and even purchase. Join local creatives at the annual ArtWorks ArtMarkets, where artisans share their work in the decidedly beautiful and inspiring scenery of Saranac Lake.

2023 ArtMarkets

The ArtMarkets will be in Riverfront Park, along the shore of Lake Flower near the public boat launch and the Church St intersection. Approximately 30 artists set up tents and displays to sell their work. Hours are 10 – 3. Please contact Saranac Lake ArtWorks if interested in participating. ArtWorks members will have priority.

Studio Tours

We are also bringing back the Studio Tours this summer! See a sampling of work at the Saturday ArtMarket, then visit galleries and artists studios on Sunday. A full weekend to experience the arts in the Adirondacks! Check back for additional information.

One of the goals of ArtWorks is to connect artists and artisans to the community through the presentation of visual and literary arts created in the North Country. The ArtMarkets and Studio Tours are one way of serving this purpose. Galleries and studios in town may also be hosting an open house or other special events. ArtWorks is partnering with the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce for this event.
