Albany Center Gallery is a non-profit art space dedicated to exhibiting skillful contemporary art of the Mohawk Hudson region, and building a strong, knowledgeable audience for the visual arts. We are a community-based and community supported organization. Albany Center Gallery is supported by city, state, corporate and foundation funds, as well as fundraisers, individual donations and memberships.

The mission of Albany Center Gallery is to promote and exhibit contemporary visual art produced by emerging and established artists living primarily in the region and to inspire interest and provide enjoyment to an increasingly diverse audience.

Calling all ACG members! We are excited to extend an invitation to you to exhibit your work in a special exhibition this summer at the gallery. We know many artists are inspired by other artists and now here's your chance to invite them to showcase with you! Each ACG member can invite one non-ACG member to exhibit their work in an exhibit we call Creations: Connections & Collections. The goal of this exhibition is to highlight and expand our network of local and regional artists, and we need your help! 

Current members with an active ACG membership may submit one work of art AND you may invite one artist friend (who isn’t a member of ACG) to submit a work of art as well! Member submission is free, non-members’ submission fee is $25. Special membership opportunity: if non-members wish to become a member of ACG, the submission fee will be credited toward the standard Artist & Friend membership cost of $50.

The exhibition will take place in two of the three segments of the gallery in a salon-style format. Due to limited space, the artwork size is restricted to 24” x 24” including the frame. Sculpture artists are welcome to submit as well, please contact ACG for size limitations. To secure your spot (and your artist friend’s spot) in the exhibition, you must register via Submittable.
