Contemporary Art in the Catskills
Longyear Gallery is an artist-run [nonprofit 501(c)(3)] cooperative presenting professional artists from the New York Metro area, and rural NY State. To assure the highest standards of work, and a broad range of styles and media, artists are juried into the gallery. Exhibits change monthly featuring two solo exhibitions with a new group show of gallery artists. An invitational exhibition "Artists Choose Artists" and a special Holiday Exhibition rounds out the year. It's a long year indeed.
Since the gallery’s founding in 2007 word has spread, and the gallery has been visited by art lovers and collectors from all over the United States and abroad. You are encouraged to join them. We expanded our gallery space and roster in 2018.
Longyear Gallery is approximately 2-½ hours from Manhattan, located in the historic Commons Building in Margaretville, NY on the edge of the beautiful 700 thousand acre Catskill Park. For travel directions, please phone the gallery at (845) 586-3270 or Mapquest:
