The John D. Barrow Art Gallery is a single-artist gallery containing the works of John D. Barrow (1824 --1906), a second generation Hudson River School style painter.  The Gallery opened October 8, 1900, beginning a wonderful cultural and historical legacy for the Skaneateles community.  The primary entrance to the Gallery is through the Skaneateles Library; however, the Gallery is a separate non-profit facility.
