The fourth annual Nigra Arts Center Regional Art Show, featuring work from artists who live and work in Fulton, Montgomery and neighboring counties, and the second Adirondack Life Art Show, featuring award-winning photography from artists who have been published in Adirondack Life Magazine, have been combined into a single exhibition that will be on display June 4 to July 21, with a public opening reception on June 11, 6 to 8 p.m. The Nigra Arts Center’s fifth annual New York State Summer Art Show will follow, with a new start date of July 30. This show will conclude on Sept. 25, its original end date, then the rest of the Nigra Arts Center’s 2020 exhibitions will proceed as previously scheduled and listed on

The annual Lexington Foundation Golf Tournament, originally scheduled for June 5, has been postponed to Aug. 28. Rental space will be available at the Nigra Arts Center for private and corporate events after May 18.
