A HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL GEM IN THE HEART OF SKANEATELES
Since first opening its doors more than a century ago, the Gallery has delighted visitors from near and far with its collection of paintings by John D. Barrow (1824-1906). Considered a “second generation” Hudson River School style artist, Barrow was known both for his portraits and landscapes. The collection includes more than 400 works, with more than 250 on display. We hope you will visit us soon!

Featuring Our New Scheduling Tool!
Tuesday, April 30th, at 1:30 PM
Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity? Then please join us to learn more about becoming a Gallery docent. We rely on our wonderful docents to cover short shifts (typically afternoons), allowing the Gallery to remain open additional hours. No knowledge of art is necessary. We provide the training and support you need to get started, and you pick the shifts that work for you! The orientation will begin in Library Hall (upstairs in the Skaneateles Library). Please contact us if you would like to attend.
