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.

Because we are a cooperative that takes no commissions on sales of our artist's work, prices are half those of a commercial gallery.

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 artist 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. Fine dining is available across the street at Binnekill Tavern www.binnekill.com and excellent provisions can be found at Home Goods of Margaretville www.hgom.net. Shops abound along Main Street.
