Art chairs return to Ruston for viewing this week and silent auction Saturday

Anything goes in summertime, including sitting on your art. Art chairs, that is. Because the art Adirondacks are back in Ruston this week – 21 artist-painted Adirondack chairs, which are up for viewing 4-7 p.m. every day this week outside the Ruston Town Hall, and available for you to buy via silent auction this Saturday.

This year, though, there are a few differences. For starters, the chairs are arranged in front of the low-slung, sage-green Ruston Town Hall, instead of ranged along the grassy median strip in the middle of North Winnifred Street. Clustered on the front lawn, they have an expectant, cozy look, as if waiting for a summer concert or evening drinks party.

“We wanted to involve the local town hall,” explains co-chair Lucy Davis. “And it looked charming.”
