Folkstore Artist Spotlight

The Folkstore Artist Spotlight (FAS) is a special showcase of work from a local artist or group of related artists. These exhibits highlight the local living traditions of the North Country through locally-made products which are on view and for sale in The TAUNY Center. The Folkstore Artist Spotlight Series also allows TAUNY to present a greater range of work by these local producers.   

Folkstore Spotlight:
The Enduring Mystique of the Adirondacks in American Writing

Opens February 3rd

February is a great month to read by the fire, and visitors to The TAUNY Center will have a chance to add to their libraries this month. Folkstore Spotlight: The Enduring Mystique of the Adirondacks in American Writing will open at The TAUNY Center on February 3.  Roderick Nash, in his classic masterpiece "Wilderness and the American Mind" states that no other wild area in the New World captured the imagination of more writers or inspired more literature than the Adirondacks. This Spotlight is a collection of both new and old fiction and non-fiction books about or set in the Adirondacks, including first editions of classics. Topics include camp life, boating, social history, and celebrations of the beauty of the landscape.
