Celebrate. Value. Sustain. Fund More Art Everywhere!

Tags: Gallery News

Thousands of community members (including 500+ artists) are positively impacted by Albany Center Gallery’s programs and exhibitions, each year. Together in 2023, we paid $92,000+ directly and another $13,000+ in connected opportunities to 110 artists. That’s over $100,000 back to artists in the community. Supporting art and artists is essential to enrich cultural identity, engage imagination, and inspire us all.

Can we count on your support for local artists and creative community?

Yes? Donate here now. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

75% of ACG's Annual Appeal donors contribute $100 or less.

It all makes a difference.

This past year, ACG hosted 8 in-house exhibitions, 8 pop-up exhibits, 6+ #CapitalWalls tours, as well as 15 youth art programs, (8 in-house at Art.Work.Space.). We also collaborated with 10+ local businesses for private art consulting including a mural in Cohoes and 10+ community organizations for programming, and presented 3 new #CapitalWalls* murals. We served 100+ local youth through interactive free, art-making programs.


DID YOU KNOW? ACG is free and open to the public for exhibitions, pop-ups, receptions, public art, and programs. This is only possible because of YOU and YOUR support. Help us keep art accessible for the community.


ACG’s Board of Directors and loyal supporters are matching donations for this campaign up to $8,000. Invest in ACG by January 31, 2024 and your gift will have double the impact. You give $50, we receive $100. You give $100, we receive $200, etc. Our goal is to raise $16,000 to sustain and expand ACG’s programming, including youth programs, public art, curated exhibitions, showcasing opportunities, and more.

Donations for this campaign as of 2/14/2024


We’re endlessly grateful to you for supporting ACG and the creative economy, while prioritizing local and regional artists. You are our community. If you’ve experienced any programs or exhibits over the year, thank you for participating and please consider contributing to this appeal and/or inviting a friend to. Thanks in advance for your generosity in celebrating, valuing, sustaining, and funding More Art Everywhere!
