LARAC moves Art Fest to new, larger site

QUEENSBURY -- The Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council will be holding its annual Fall Arts & Crafts Festival Saturday Nov. 7 and Sunday Nov. 8 at Adirondack Sports Complex, "The Dome", located on Sherman Road. The Festival consists of a juried art and craft show, which is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and closes one hour earlier on Sunday. Admission is $4, children under 12 are free.

There will also be bounce-house activities on site for children while parents shop.

This will be LARAC's first time at The Dome, and the festival has grown in size due to this new, larger location.

For the show, regional and national artists are selected to exhibit based on originality, quality, execution, presentation. An eclectic selection of art and craft mediums will be represented including pottery, decorative painting, glass, fabric, ceramics, photography, jewelry, sculpture, wood, graphics and illustration, stone, mixed media, painting, metal, specialty gourmet food items, and more.

The environment is well suited for all groups and makes for a wonderful opportunity for both gift buying as well as for personal collecting, according to LARAC.

"The creating artist is on site in each booth, which establishes an exciting atmosphere of knowledge and inspiration," a LARAC representative said.
