“This project has been a leap of faith for our business sponsors and our artists who made the commitment to participate back in the fall when many had been experiencing months of hardship due to the pandemic”, explains Development Team Lead and Event Manager Kathy Aubin.
“With their encouragement, we decided to proceed, and we are now able to showcase the stunning work of our artists and to help drive traffic to our local businesses throughout the summer. It’s a collaboration that directly benefits the entire community.”
A “Chair Trail Map” will be available at the SAA Center & Gallery, the Sandwich Chamber of Commerce Visitor’s Center beginning Memorial Day Weekend. Chairs will be found throughout the entire town so that residents and tourists alike can discover all the wonderful shops and organizations in sandwich. There will be family and kids’ events including a Mini Adirondack Chair Painting Contest and an Adirondack Chair Coloring Book Contest with weekly prizes awarded throughout the summer. After Labor Day Weekend, the chairs will be auctioned off at a festive event with proceeds supporting the arts and cultural programming in Sandwich.

SAA would like to thank its funding partner, the Sandwich Visitor Services Board, for their generous support.
