Albany Center Gallery is a non-profit art space dedicated to exhibiting skillful contemporary art of the Mohawk Hudson region. A community-based and community supported organization, the mission of Albany Center Gallery is to promote and exhibit contemporary visual art produced by emerging and established artists living primarily in the region and to inspire interest and provide enjoyment to an increasingly diverse audience.

A few blocks from our old space, the gallery is located in the Arcade Building behind a new Stacks Espresso bar. Entry into the space is up the alleyway to the right of the building (if you’re facing from Broadway).
