Community Builders: TAUNY

TAUNY–Traditional Arts in Upstate New York–is dedicated to showcasing the folk culture and living traditions of the North Country. With archives, exhibits, and programs in Canton and throughout the region, TAUNY celebrates the diversity of living traditions inherited from the past, maintained in the present, and passed on to the future. By celebrating our North Country’s distinct identity – and the everyday people, places, and things that define it – TAUNY encourages an understanding and appreciation of life in the region, for residents and visitors alike.

The TAUNY Gallery features a permanent orientation exhibit and changing folk culture exhibits. The North Country Folkstore, with authentic, handmade products from individuals and families throughout the region, provides an outlet for local traditional artists to sell their items and a resource for visitors to find local products for souvenirs and gifts.

Located at 53 Main in historic downtown Canton, the Gallery and Folkstore hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information call TAUNY at 315-386-4289 or visit www.TAUNY.org.
