Arts in the Park

This year’s Keeseville Community Arts Festival will feature a new event designed to engage more community members than ever before: Arts in the Park. Artists and artisans local to Keeseville will set up alongside the Ausable River in Anderson Falls Park on Saturday, July 23rd. In addition to selling their artwork, each artist will be actively demonstrating their craft, talking about their work, and answering questions from festival goers. Pottery, jewelry making, graphic arts, Adirondack furniture crafting, and culinary arts will all be included, as well as musical performances by Alice’s Fault and Joanna D’Ascoli. 

Our popular Plein Air Brunch introduced at last year’s festival will return again this year, and will also take place the morning of Saturday the 23rd. Attendees can enjoy mimosas and a light brunch while viewing over 100 newly created works of art by 40 talented artists, showing the beautiful landscapes and architecture of Keeseville. Paintings are available for purchase from 6:00 PM Friday through Sunday afternoon.

Kids of all ages will have the opportunity to engage in the arts in hands-on activities during Arts in the Park. Thanks to support from Chapel Hill Foundation and the George and Shirley Moore Foundation, AdkAction is offering a youth outdoor painting class, a zine making station, and a tie dye workshop where kids will be given a free festival t-shirt to dye and take home. Signing up in advance is recommended for both the outdoor painting class and the tie dye workshop to guarantee a spot. 

Check out AdkAction.org/Art for the full schedule of events including live music, theater, children’s author readings, our plein air opening reception, mural dedication, art shows, and much more happening around town during the festival.
