Founded in 2019 by Leslie b. Weissman with the goal to create a multi-sensory, mixed-use space, the Gallery is focused on bringing emerging artists to this culturally vibrant location in the Hudson Valley

The Gallery offers curated shows to emerging and mid-career artists from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds, it gives artists a support system to develop their work and investigate influences and aspirations, and it connects them to collectors and art enthusiasts.

Through Art For A Cause, it supports local non-profits organizations that share a philosophy of helping humanitarian causes that aim to improve people’s lives.

The Gallery proclaims to know creativity gives access to another part of the self and provides necessary connections, which has been especially true during the past year.

The gallery also provides an artful gifts section with home and wearable objects created by some of the gallery artists.

Leslie began this journey with Peg Kaftka-Sackler, who has relocated but will continue to be an exhibiting artist with the Gallery. Leslie is thrilled to be working with the inspired artist and curator Erika Lyn Horwitz who lends her gregarious personality and shares Leslie’s enthusiasm for mentoring artists.
