Donate to our Annual Appeal
A global pandemic hasn’t stopped us from fulfilling our mission this year! Since March, we’ve reintroduced our popular Collector’s Club, we presented a Virtual Jazz Series with seven of the Jazz world’s most amazing artists, we’ve made improvements to our website to make it more comprehensive and easier to navigate, and we’ve relaunched the Peoples Pixel Project with a 2020 twist. Reimagining current programs, reviving programs from long ago and introducing new program models will put us in a more sustainable position when we can fully operate again – setting us up for an even stronger more visible presence in the community and region. When we get back to normal, we have big plans to expand both our visual arts programming as well as work with our friends in the community to deliver a longer presenting season.
If you have benefited from our programming – or value the availability of our programs in the community, please consider making a contribution. It is our hope that we can gather our friends and supporters to help us get through 2020 and start 2021 strong and ready for what this new reality brings us. Our Courthouse Gallery will continue to be open throughout the fall and winter – we hope you have a chance to stop by to see the shows and to say hi!
Peoples Pixel Project returns in 2021 with a new look – Congratulations to Mary Kathryn Jablonski on winning our P3 Logo Design Contest!
We are excited to relaunch P3, knowing it is important more than ever for film makers to have a platform to show their work. P3 is always a work-in-progress, and in 2021 we are hoping to adapt the program to the unique circumstances we all face. The year 2020 not only provided artists inspiration, but also changed what inspires artists and how organizations, like us, present programs in non-traditional ways. For 2021 we’ve expanded our geographic reach and also made some changes to the program format. The deadline to submit videos is March 1, 2021.

The Lake George Arts Project was established in 1977 to offer comprehensive programs in the arts. Its mission is to provide exposure and income opportunities to professional and emerging artists, and to provide quality arts programming for the residents and visitors of the Lake George region. Our music and art programs include year-round Courthouse Gallery exhibitions, Jazz at the Lake in September, Wednesday Night Summer Concert Series, and in spring a video shorts screening from regional film makers – the Peoples Pixel Project.
The Lake George Arts Project is also known for its creative and diverse fundraising events which include Bands and Beans, a chili and music fest in March; The Summer Sunset Cruise aboard the Adirondac on Lake George in June; a golf tournament in May & September; and a variety of other events. Admission to the Courthouse Gallery, Jazz Weekend, Summer Concerts, and many special events are free to the public.
