Lake George Arts Project's Courthouse Gallery Exhibitions

The Courthouse Gallery presents 6 exhibitions yearly of regional and national contemporary visual artists in all media. In these challenging times we are researching new ways to support artists and alternate ways you can experience their work.

The Courthouse Gallery reopened to the public on July 11 with a solo exhibition of new work by Jenny Kemp. The exhibition runs from July 11 – August 14, 2020.

We are committed to public safety within our UpState NY community and beyond, and want everybody to stay strong, safe, and healthy. All entering our office and gallery space will need to wear a mask and will be asked to sign in with their name and two points of contact (email, address, and/or phone number). We will provide masks for those that need one, and provide hand sanitizing stations throughout our space.

We suggest that you contact the gallery before your visit, since NYS guidelines related to Covid-19 may change. Call 518-668-2616, ​or ​email [email protected].

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.
