Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts and API are proud to announce the second annual juried photography exhibit, Diversity Through Many Lenses, to be on display in Blue Mountain Lake from August 26 thru September 24. Last year's inagural event was quite a success, in both entries and attendance. We are very excited to see this year's entered work and watch the event grow!

API is once again sponsoring the Exceptional Nature Image award, with a $250 donation.

Get Up-Close and Personal This Fall

We've always wanted to do a fall close-up workshop in the Adirondacks. There's just so much to see and photograph! Well, due to an unanticipated scheduling change, we are able to bring a close-up event to the calendar this year.

Autumn Up-Close and Personal will take place October 2-5 in Inlet, at the anticipated height of color season. Led by instructors John DiGiacomo and John Radigan, this promises to be a fun exploration of the Adirondacks in small pieces.

Don't miss out on this alternative take on Adirondack nature photography!

Bring API Experience To Your Group Or Club Outing

Over the years we've had many inquiries about customized programs for various clubs and other private groups. We realize that the programs in our annual schedule don't suit the needs of everyone, so we've created a new service just for the purpose of addressing groups with unique desires.

Our Club & Private Programs offering will provide your group with great API leaders, with the planning and people skills to make your program special and fun. Don't hesitate to contact us with your group's ideas. We're happy to help!
