The Niskart gallery

The NiskArt Gallery is an Arts In Education facility that is enjoyed by the whole community. It is unique in its conception as a school, family, and community center, connecting people through the visual arts. From a community - based Gallery Committee, which serves as an "arts network" and aids in the selection of artists, to the school - based, Gallery Club, which fosters authentic art gallery experiences for students, the gallery is exceptional.

Gallery exhibits feature award winning work by Niskayuna students as well as local, regional, and national artists. Exhibiting artists are honored with an opening or closing reception and the shows are publicized, listed, and reviewed in major area newspapers. The gallery is secure and all artwork is insured. The gallery is non-profit. The exhibiting artists' contact information is available upon request.
