Art and artist are no strangers to the Adirondacks. Over the years many notables in multiple disciplines spent time or resided in the Adirondacks. To name a few notables: the writer Ralph Waldo Emerson (part of The Philosophers Camp), painters Thomas Cole, Winslow Homer, Georgia O'Keeffe and Rockwell Kent, not to mention photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz, Margaret Bourke-White, Eliot Porter, Seneca Ray Stoddard.

In addition to those notables, there were also quite a number of local artist / craftsman who started the Adirondack Rustic "Movement". A "Movement" which continues to this day. Their work included furniture / furnishings, boats and architectural designs. Many of their works are on display at the Adirondack Museum campus.The museum also hosts an autumn weekend annual rustic furniture fair which draws thousand of vistors.

Appropo of artists in the Adirondacks, the picture in this entry of the log and stone structure is that of an artist's studio built for the son the builder of the Santanoni Great Camp. For scale, the bottom of the magnificent arched north-light window is approximately 8ft. from the ground.
