Also, the 10th Annual Colors of Fall Festival is in the planning

Artist Discussion this Thursday, 7pm

For all you art lovers- don't miss the chance to view some great work, and chat with some great artists!

The Arts Center Gallery at 320 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, invites the public to attend a discussion with the artists of its current exhibit, American Bliss. Both Michael Millspaugh and Ken Ragsdale will be present this Thursday, at 7pm to discuss the inspiration, concept and process in the creation of their artwork.

American Bliss features two artists whose work reveals distinct viewpoints about exploration and possibility, inherent American traits. Whether going car camping or coveting a firearm, there are specific traditions, mores and expectations that define American identity. Both artists use mixed materials in their artistic voyage; each offers an investigation from personal histories to political possibilities.
