By all accounts, the annual Cranberry Lake Art Show was a fantastic success. Artists from around the region exhibited and sold their work, while the silent auction offered everything from pack baskets and original paintings to handwoven wool socks and much more. Of course, the highlight of the event was auction, which this year, featured wooden loons as the object of so much creative expression.
Auctioneer Todd Moe from North Country Public Radio even submitted his own loon creation, the Loon Moon, which included an original haiku written on the bottom and decoupage images of the many phases of the moon visible in the night sky.
Benefits from the art show and auction go to support scholarships for local high school students, and of course, to help supply next year’s object of choice. Many thanks to organizers Marilyn Zimber, Gail Gotham, and Char Lough and all the volunteers who made the event such a tremendous success.
We’re looking forward to next year!
