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!
The Gallery Thanks Departing Director
Regina Lewis-Middleton is stepping down from her role as Gallery Director at the end of January. She has served as Director since 2018, after having served for ten years as a valued member of the Gallery’s Management Committee. Regina’s strong commitment to the Gallery, her knowledge and care of the collection, and her natural ability to warmly welcome and inform our visitors will certainly be missed. We wish Regina the very best going forward, and we greatly appreciate all she has done for the Gallery!

Annual Fund Drive 2019
The Gallery’s Board of Trustees and Management Committee are deeply grateful for the community’s tremendous support in 2019!
With the help of so many friends and neighbors, the Gallery’s Annual Fund Drive raised over $30,000 — a new record! This fantastic response not only paid for the needed roof restoration work (begun well before the winter weather hit, and now safely water-proofed until Spring), it also put the Gallery’s 2019 operating budget in solid black.
Please note that the Gallery will be closed for the month of January, except on January 25 for Winter Fest. We will be using this time to plan for the upcoming year, which we intend to be even better than the year just past.
We sincerely thank all of the Gallery’s supporters, and wish all of you a happy and healthy New Year. See you at the Gallery in 2020!
Bring one of Barrow’s beautiful works of art home to display for family and friends. A selection of his paintings are available for loan within the Finger Lakes region for 2-year periods, with the rental fee based on the appraised value of the painting. This program was featured in Central New York Magazine – The Good Life’s March/April 2019 issue (see the article). Please contact us to learn more about Borrow-a-Barrow.
Event Space Available
Looking for a unique and inspiring meeting place? The Gallery is available for small special events, such as recitals or anniversary parties. We even have a baby grand piano that was just tuned, and is ready to be played and enjoyed. Please contact us for more information.
Chamber of Commerce Event
The Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce held a successful after hours event for local businesses at the Gallery in November. We were happy to host this wonderful group!
