Lake George Courthouse Gallery Exhibitions

The Courthouse Gallery presents 6 exhibitions yearly of regional and national contemporary visual artists in all media. We are temporarily closed due to public health mandates related to COVID 19. Until further notice we will not have regular gallery hours and will not host any receptions or meetings, but we do plan to continue presenting the work of our selected artists.

In keeping with our mission, we are researching new ways to support our artists, and exploring alternate ways for you to experience their work remotely.

Our next exhibition runs from May 9 – June 12, 2020: Sculpture by Lee Malerich and Paintings by Michael Van Winkle. This exhibition will be installed in the gallery through June 12, with hopes we can reassess the situation as restrictions are eventually lifted, possibly allowing for pre-scheduled gallery visits for individuals, or very small groups.

In place of a Gallery Reception on Saturday, May 9, 2020,  The Lake George Arts Project’s Courthouse Gallery presented an online talk with exhibiting artists Lee Malerich and Michael Van Winkle. Please CLICK HERE for information on how to view our virtual event. 

In addition, please follow these links to a brief slideshow film about each artist and their work:

Our Mission:

Our gallery mission is to provide exhibition opportunities to emerging and professional artists, with preference given to work created within the last 2 years, and to experimental or non-traditional work. We provide artists with a quality space where they can present a solid body of work in a solo or small group show. The gallery is also the site for many literary, musical, and visual art workshops, classes, presentations, readings, meetings, and other events.

Proposals for Shows:

Artists are invited to send exhibition proposals to the Courthouse Gallery. We seek proposals from professional artists and crafts-persons (those making a living, or endeavoring to make a living, through their artwork). Strong preference is given to work created within the past two years. We welcome proposals for special exhibitions, installations, mixed media presentations, and performance art. The deadline is always January 31 (postmark deadline). Click here for guidelines.

Find us:

We are located in the back lower level of the historic Old County Courthouse in Lake George on Amherst Street.

Hours:

Wednesday through Friday 12 – 5 pm

Saturday 12 – 4 pm (during exhibitions)

All other times by request.
