Woodworking and Fine Arts Weekend

Northville Rotary’s Eleventh Annual Woodworking and Fine Arts Weekend July 19-21 will feature more than 60 accomplished artists from this area and beyond. Woodworkers, jewelers, weavers, potters, photographers, painters, and many other artists will display and sell their artwork at the Bradt Building and Park on Main Street in the Village of Northville on the beautiful Great Sacandaga Lake.

The weekend will begin with a “Meet the Artists” Reception on Friday from 5:00-8:00. Hours Saturday will be 9-5 and Sunday 10-3 and include demonstrations, raffles, and a silent auction. Food can be purchased from a number of vendors. Proceeds from this event will be used throughout the year to provide scholarships to students, support community organizations, and projects of Rotary International.

We are proud to announce that this year’s Featured Artists are Carolyn Adamczyk of Northville, an exceptional stained glass artist and William Betrus of Saranac who is designer and creator of unique Adirondack custom furniture.

Carolyn Adamczyk grew up in Hope, New York and graduated from Northville Central School in 1985. Upon graduation, she joined the Air Force and served for over 20 years. Carolyn always knew she would return to Northville. She and her husband Ken moved back in 2014.

Carolyn started creating glass art shortly after retiring from the Air Force. She always had an artistic side and finally had the time to pursue her art. Her business, Silver Maple Stained Glass, is just two years old, but she has been creating and selling for over 12 years. Carolyn’s art is original, and often taken from the nature that surrounds her. If you would like to learn more about Silver Maple Stained Glass, contact her at 518-863-2256 or check out her Facebook Page.

William Betrus along with his wife Elaine began Adirondack Custom Twig in 1998 as a family run business, specializing in ornate Adirondack style twig work. They have been building rustic furniture and fixtures all of their lives. Their workshops are located in the remote Adirondack Park of upstate New York. Growing up in and around the Great Camps of the Adirondacks, has provided them with diverse prospective, and exposure to this unique art form. Their proximity to Lake Placid, and the high peaks allows them to enjoy many different venues.

All the furniture created by William and Elaine is made from the finest materials selected for their character. They create pieces for bedrooms, kitchens, the outdoors, or great rooms. Their unique rustic furniture can be seen at the prestigious Lake Placid Lodge in Lake Placid New York, or on their website www.adirondacktradingpost.com. Their artistic twig furniture has been shown at the Western Design Conference in Cody, Wyoming, as well as many years in the Rustic Furniture Show at the Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake, N.Y.
