What our members are saying:

“I consider the Arts Center to be a warm and welcoming venue

for artists of the Capital Region to show their work, see the work of other artists and to socialize within the art community. I particularly appreciated the availability of printing equipment when I was exploring monoprinting”

-Gerri M.


“I became a member to be a part of the community…People are supportive and the teachers are excellent. You don’t feel like you have to be good already, it is a non-judgemental environment. I have found the instructors to be passionate and caring, and they are generous in sharing their knowledge. I love being there.”

-Mark M
