Celebrating 45 years of ACG! Design by Quill Harrison


**As of 1/30/2023, We have reached $15,182 of our total goal of $20,000. Can you help us get there by January 31? Donate Here! Read more below**

In 2022, ACG hosted 8+ in-house exhibitions, 5 pop-up exhibits, 8+ #CapitalWalls tours, as well as 11 youth art programs, (5 in our newly opened Art.Work.Space. location). We also collaborated with 6+ local businesses for private art consulting, 20+ community organizations for programming, and presented 3 new #CapitalWalls murals in 2 cities with our partners Albany Barn and ParkAlbany. We served over 100 local youth through interactive free, art-making programs. It’s been a record-breaking year: a wonderful way to celebrate 45 years of art and community. As a few members of the community have shared, ACG’s founder Les Urbach would be proud.

Join us in celebrating and sustaining Albany Center Gallery for another 45+ years to come. Our vision is a community shaped and enhanced by the region’s artists, who reflect and influence our evolving, inclusive, and multifaceted culture.

To donate to Albany Center Gallery's year end campaign, you can:

  • Do so online and submit your secure payment here.
  • Write out a check to "Albany Center Gallery" and mail it to 488 Broadway, Suite 107, Albany, NY 12207 with "Annual Appeal" in the memo
  • Visit ACG and hand cash or check to Karina or Emily in-person (and check out the Members' Show)
  • Send us your contribution via Venmo
  • Ask us about planned giving or stock gifts.
Email Karina at kwojnar@albanycentergallery.org if you have any questions about other methods of donating or need assistance to contribute!

 

Together, we’ve directly paid over $56,500 and another $30,000+ in connected opportunities to 95 artists. Yet, this is simply not enough to sustain the creatives who enrich our cultural identity, engage our imagination, and inspire us all.

We are only able to continue the art and accessibility we do with the creative community by working together with you. Thanks in advance for your generosity in helping us bring MORE ART EVERYWHERE, TOGETHER!

Art uplifts and inspires. In fact, ACG’s Board of Directors have been inspired to match donations for this campaign totaling up to $7,150. When you give by January 31, your gift will have double the impact. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to sustain and expand ACG’s programming, including continued opportunities for youth and emerging artists
