A vibrant cultural landscape is critical to the strength, viability, and attractiveness of not just Albany but the entire Capital Region, and ACG is proud of the work we continue to do to make our community a better place to live, work, and visit. Collaboration is more important than ever, and we are constantly seeking new partners to help advance our mission to promote the arts and enhance the local region.

Your generosity and support will help us continue to ensure a prominent, enduring platform for the arts and a stronger future for our community.
Community & Public Art
Albany Center Gallery seeks to uplift our community with educational, thought-provoking, or inspirational works of public art. ACG's community art combines community development and locally-based art, in a way that is accessible to all. Art in the community encourages creativity and empowerment, and creates positive change while inspiring the public.
Youth Art Programs
ACG hosts monthly youth art workshops (coined Art.Work.Space.) in partnership with The RED Bookshelf and Honest Weight Food Co-op. The programs are led by local artist mentors on the 2nd Saturday of each month throughout the year. The themes of the workshops will depend on what the youth want and the medium(s) of each artist. We will have workshops in writing, mural painting, screen printing, comic book making, collaging, clothing design, graphic design, watercolor painting, music, poetry, literacy, and more!
