BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE — The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts recently announced upcoming events in the month of June upon reopening for the 2024 season.

Visitors can enjoy a variety of artwork in our gallery spaces, featuring the work of collage artist Kiera Stasny, plus contributions from the Adirondack community in the center’s annual Members Show. Visitors also have the opportunity to get involved with the return of an open mic/karaoke night, followed by a special Monarch Festival workshop.

Artwork from Kiera Stasny kicks off the first round of gallery exhibits coming to ALCA this season. Stasny’s exhibit “Hobnobbing with Specters” features collages made up of digital composite photographs, drawing from historical archives, found photos, antique shops and flea markets. The center also hosts an annual Members Show, a collection of photographs, paintings, and sculpture submitted by ALCA members. Both exhibits are on display through Saturday, June 29, with a reception held that day from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. As for the upstairs gallery space, the ALCA staff anticipates the unveiling of arts center and Blue Mountain Lake history through found documents, photographs and more. This documentation project is expected to continue through the summer.

Due to popular demand, the arts center will host an open mic/karaoke night on Friday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m. Individuals or groups are welcome to sign up upon arrival; bring your own instruments or use the karaoke equipment provided. Beer, wine, and light refreshments will be available for purchase.

For those looking to get involved in art projects at ALCA, the first crafting workshop will take place on Saturday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. as part of the Indian Lake Monarch Festival. Participants will create a Monarch butterfly trinket dish using air-dry clay and acrylic paint. This workshop is open to adults and children; registration fee is $15 for arts center members, $20 for non-members. Register at adirondackarts.org/workshops.

The ALCA is located at 3446 state Route 28, Blue Mountain Lake and opens Wednesdays through Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Information and registration for all center events can be found on the ALCA website at adirondackarts.org.
