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!
