The Gallery


Longyear Gallery is an artist-run cooperative representing professional artists from the New York Metropolitan area, as well as rural New York State. To assure the highest standards of work, as well as a broad range of styles and media, artists are juried into the gallery. Exhibits change monthly, each including a new body of work by a featured artist along with a new group show. 

The gallery’s not-for-profit status offers both casual and serious collectors the opportunity to purchase high quality work directly from the artist, without the overhead associated with commercial galleries. Additionally, visitors will note both a lack of pretense and a sense of intimacy not often associated with commercial galleries. Visitors are welcome to contact Longyear artists and may make arrangements for studio visits, where additional work may be viewed.

Since the gallery’s founding in 2007 word has spread, and the gallery has been visited by numerous collectors from all over the United States and abroad. You are encouraged to join them. Longyear Gallery is approximately 2-½ hours from Manhattan, located in the historic Commons Building in Margaretville, NY. For travel directions, as well as a list of accommodations, please contact Gerda Van Leeuwen, gallery director, at or by phone at (845) 586-3270.
