Guild seeks anecdotes about Charlie Green
SARANAC LAKE — For several years, the Adirondack Artists Guild has occupied the building that once housed Charlie Green’s Market.
In January 2013, the guild plans to mount a show celebrating markets to commemorate Green’s place in the history of Saranac Lake. Each of the guild’s 14 members will provide artwork for the exhibit.
The guild is seeking anecdotes and stories about Charlie Green and his market from the public. These may be emailed to Diane Leifheit at firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at the gallery.
In addition, the guild hopes to have on hand memorabilia and photographs of Charlie and the store from anyone who has something to share. They will be returned after the show closes at the end of January.
Contact Diane Leifheit to make arrangements for the loan of anything relating to the market.
The gallery is located at 52 Main St., Saranac Lake; the phone number is 891-2615. Winter gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. on Sundays. The gallery is closed on Mondays.
