We are currently exhibiting pieces on loan from our neighboring art institution, Hamilton Hill Arts Center. These spectacular works are part of a larger collection curated by the center in an effort to promote the knowledge, preservation and development of African and African Diasporic art and culture. View this exhibit through the end of May 2019.

Schenectady & Me
In 2017, a group of art lovers and Schenectady lovers (called Schenectady Creative Arts Network or SCAN) got together to create a community based art endeavor to help bring neighborhoods together and lay the groundwork for permanent, outdoor, public sculptures in our city. The “Schenectady and Me” project brings professional artists to festivals, outdoor events, and pop ups to help participants create small, two-dimensional compositions depicting places and events from their neighborhoods. These artists will help participants of all ages overcome any fears of creating artwork. They will guide them in the use of materials and in the basic principles of art and design. Phase 2 of the project incorporates the designs into large sculptures around the city by printing them on tiles.
Photographer Richard Lovrich viewed MAKERS 365 as a social experiment as much as a work of art and its goal was a simple, if somewhat quixotic one. Photograph portraits of 365 creatives, whether residing in, or passing through, the Capital Region of New York, and post one each day on social media. The result was a that of online community building and discovery. That virtual, phase-one digital series, has become a phase-two, gallery show, crafted by creative partner Tony Iadicicco and the Albany Center Gallery. Makers celebrates creatives in all disciplines and invites us to meet them, face to face. Richard continues to capture images of creatives and is excited that MAKERS can play a small part in the opening of the Electric City Barn, a project he heartily endorses.
