View our exhibition calendar which highlights local and regional artists in solo shows and group invitationals, in addition to annual national juried exhibitions and check out an archive of our exhibition history since we opened in 2013.
Our art resource library houses a collection of over 1,500 books and ranges from historical to contemporary and collectively illuminates the impact of the arts on culture, society, and the human experience.
In addition to visual arts, Main Street Arts also focuses on literary arts and literacy through our bookstore, Sulfur Books. You’ll find new and used books for all ages—adults, young adults, middle readers, and children.
In addition to invitational exhibitions, Main Street Arts offers national and regional juried exhibition opportunities each year. Juried exhibitions include a thematic or media-specific exhibition in the spring, as well as our annual Small Works exhibition in the fall.
Artist opportunities also include our open call for work which is reviewed twice per year for consideration in invitational exhibitions.
Main Street Arts is a nonprofit arts organization and art gallery specializing in showcasing contemporary art and fine craft from emerging and established Upstate New York artists. Located in the historic, picturesque village of Clifton Springs, NY, the 3,600-square-foot space has two floors offering exhibitions, workshops, youth programs, and an art resource library.
The Main Street Arts online gallery shop features a unique selection of artwork made by artists living and working in the Finger Lakes region and western New York. Along with artwork that is included in our current exhibition, you can also browse works in ceramic, jewelry, glass, and more.
