The combined shows feature the work of local artists and artisans for sale, including paintings in various mediums, photography, and a variety of unique woodcrafts.  Face masks are required, and the volunteers on staff at the Arts Center are ensuring that the number of visitors inside the gallery is limited at any one time to allow for appropriate social distancing.  Hours are Wednesdays through Sundays, 12-4 p.m.


Peter Thomas

Tupper Arts is excited to announce its upcoming exhibit by sculptor Peter Thomas, opening Saturday, August 1, at the Tupper Arts Center, 106 Park St., Tupper Lake. Peter is an accomplished wildlife sculptor from New York City who also has a residence in Tupper Lake, where he has spent many summers enjoying the Adirondacks. This will be his first-ever one-man show, and it means a lot to him that it will happen in Tupper Lake. Peter's work includes clay and bronze sculptures and other mediums. He will be at the Arts Center 2-4 p.m. on August 1 and August 2 to meet with visitors and demonstrate his process for creating his pieces. Viewing hours for the show will be Wednesdays through Sundays, 12-4 p.m., August 1-16. Admission is free!

Who we are ...

Tupper Lake has a century-old identity as a vibrant, self-sustaining artistic community. Tupper Arts endeavors to revitalize this tradition for new generations through activities that include outreach to K-12 students and programming for teens, adults, and seniors.  Just like the abundant beauty of our Adirondack environment, the rich artistic creativity of Tupper Lake deserves nurturing and caretaking for years to come. 


The mission of Tupper Arts is to promote the efforts and achievements of artists and artisans of all ages in Tupper Lake and the surrounding Adirondack Park, including painters, potters, dancers, woodworkers, musicians, actors, composers and playwrights, storytellers, and graphic-design artists. By supporting and encouraging local artists, Tupper Arts hopes to help enrich the cultural life of the entire community as we present art exhibits, classes, workshops, book readings, concerts, theater, and other events.

The new Tupper Arts Center (TAC), located at 106 Park Street next to the Adirondack State Theater, is already a focal point for these exciting activities. For more information, please contact us at 518-359-5042 or info@tupperarts.com.
