The Mohawk Valley Artist Group left their home-base in Kirkland and made the trek up north.

The group - hosting their annual Lakeside Art Event meeting in Old Forge all to take in some new scenery.  The club has been around for over ten years and encourages wide varieties of art. Wednesday’s event featured a live model positioned in an Adirondack chair for sculpting and painting.

"We are trying to promote arts up here in Old Forge, and this is one way to do it, and all of our area artists are invited and we just have a blast, and I hope next year that it will even be larger," says Suzanne Firsching, member.

The Mohawk Valley artists encourage anyone to join whether they are professional or amateur.
