Our mission is to bring awareness and visibility to both local and regional artists by hosting pop-up events around the City of Schenectady, allowing artists to showcase their creative talents while also building a network of potential buyers, thereby giving both the artists as well as the general public an opportunity to be exposed to great art as a cultural activity.
Mission Statement: To bring awareness and visibility to artists by hosting pop-up events around the City of Schenectady, allowing artists to showcase their talent while building a network of potential buyers, giving artists and the public an opportunity to be exposed to art as a cultural activity.
This exhibit and sale will feature the works 34 local and regional artists who will display 170+ original works of art in a variety of artistic mediums. One of the primary goals of Gallery 5 is to foster an art ecosystem that connects those who create original works of art and the art-buying public. Prices range from $200 to $40,000 and artists are both new, up-and-coming creators to seasoned artists with established careers.
Gallery 5 is already planning a second pop-up for the fall time slot. Schenectady is a vibrant community with a strong vision to enrich the lives of city and county residents as well as to promote both people and place as part of the New Schenectady initiative.
