Artists begin work on Chrissy's Chairs
In case you haven't heard, area artists are already getting busy designing, embellishing and painting Adirondack chairs for the 2010 installment of the ever-popular Chrissy's Chairs auction event.
Many of the same artists are participating, but there are a few new faces that will add a lot of interest to the mix this year. The auction isn't until Aug. 21, but you will be seeing the decorative chairs throughout town all summer long.
This year the event's organizers will also be raffling off a chair - so everyone can have a chance at going home with a unique piece of art. Last year, through the widespread participation in the auction by area visitors and residents, Chrissy's Fund was able to raise and donate $13,000 to High Peaks Hospice.
