SARANAC LAKE - Carol Vossler, owner of BluSeed Studios and an art professor at North Country Community College, was painting a wooden brook trout behind the college's Hodson Hall Thursday afternoon.
Vossler carved the trout, the last of the Adirondack Carousel's 24 hand-carved animals, and has been painting it with the help of Nancy Brossard. It will be on display when the carousel opens to the public from 1 to 8 p.m. Saturday in William Morris Park on Bloomingdale Avenue. Rides will be free all that day, courtesy of Stewart's Shops.
The trout's name is Tommy, as decided by local school children who named all the animals.
