From 2016-2017, SLC Arts has worked towards establishing a space in Potsdam where artists can photograph their 2D and 3D artwork for professional development purposes. This project is now becoming a reality thanks to the generosity of the Grasseroots Fund, a partnership with the Potsdam Public Library, and donors like you who contributed to our 2016 crowdfunding campaign at, a service of the Adirondack Foundation.
SLC Arts will host a series of free training workshops, with a future goal of making the SLC Arts Lighting Studio available for artists and community members to reserve studio time to use the equipment independently.

SLC Arts Lighting Studio equipment demos

Lighting is a key factor in successful photography and film.
