ALCA-Seltzer Series!


During this time of social distancing and staying safe, we are pleased to present the

ALCA-Seltzer Series: Online Relief from the Headaches of Social Distancing!

Plop, plop, fizz, fizz ... These "doses" of online workshops (Seltzer Workshops), short videos (Seltzer Shorts), & livestreams (Seltzer Streams) are designed to help us stay connected with those in our communities, whether near or far away! They will include songs, theatre, studio tours, workshops, concerts ... a wide range of activities that reflect what the Arts Center has offered and will offer again once the danger of COVID-19 has passed. Thanks to all of the talented folks who are part of our series! 

Please consider helping the Arts Center through this difficult time so we can continue providing programming that both serves and features our communities here in the Adirondacks. A gift of any size is appreciated in this critical time, or consider renewing or purchasing a new membership to support the Arts Center.

Another ALCA-Seltzer dose from the Arts Center medicine cabinet: A fun take on the Who's Pinball Wizard from a 2017 concert by the incredible Canadian group Sultans of String! The Sultans performed at the Arts Center in both 2016 and 2017 through the generosity of the Tom Fagen Music Fund. For more of their music, including their brand new album -- and to enjoy all their current virtual activities! -- go to


A song and personal message for Arts Center supporters from the wonderful Colorado-based duo Bettman & Halpin.

They will now be part of our 2021 lineup! Check them out on Facebook:
