POTSDAM -- SLC Arts invites the community to an exhibit opening event featuring the North Country Artist Friends.

The event will take place Thursday, Aug. 22 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the SLC Arts Gallery at Potsdam Town Hall.

Poetry readings by local poets Karyn Crispo and Jim Bourey will also be featured.

North Country Artist Friends began as a group of artists who met in Leon LeBeau’s watercolor class at SOAR. When the class ended, the artists continued to paint together on their own.

The group now includes felters, abstract artists, oil, and watercolor painters.
