SARANAC LAKE - The Adirondack Artists Guild will be host to an Art Swap Saturday, Jan. 30 from 12-4 p.m. at the the art gallery at 52 Main Street. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Bluseedlings Art Scholarship Program.
The Art Swap is a an opportunity follow through on resolutions to straighten out the studio. Participants can make space in their place by swapping, bartering and trading out the art materials, props, curious object'd'art, antiquities and other art miscellanea that no longer provide inspiration and are just plain gathering dust.
Hobbyists and artists can gather no-longer-used art objects or kits, gently used stuff that would appreciate a new home and art materials bought that are no longer needed.
Anyone interested in swapping, bartering, trading may bring 5-10 gently used items to the art gallery along with a $5 entry fee. To reserve a space call 891-2615. Light refreshments will be available.
Visitors to the gallery may purchase swap items for a donation to the Blueseedings Art Program.
All proceeds from the day will go to the Bluseedling Art Program Scholarship Fund at BluSeed Studios. Bluseedlings is a creative arts program for children. The program is designed and developed to inspire children to explore and discover art through creative projects in clay, drawing and painting. The program seeks to develop and strengthen creative skills, build self-esteem and confidence, develop a sense of individuality, encourage self-expression, and stimulate imagination in children.
