NORTHVILLE — With sunny skies and comfortable temperatures expected for this weekend, the Sacadaga Valley Arts Network Arts Trails is a good way for art enthusiasts to enjoy the beauty of the tri-counties while also seeing stunning artwork by area artists, having the opportunity to talk with the artists and to watch them work.
