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.
Main Street Arts offers opportunities for artists in invitational thematic or media-specific exhibitions throughout the year.
Our open call for work, a general submission for us to consider your work, is also reviewed twice per year for consideration in upcoming exhibitions. Artists also have opportunities to teach workshops or take part in community events.
In addition to artist opportunities, we also have various opportunities for volunteers to help cultivate a creative community through Main Street Arts!
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.
“I aspire to masterfully unite ceramic techniques with proven principles of design distributed across all mediums within my work, culminating in new found art appreciation. I am driven to excellence by the connections people make with functional products from the receipt of the item, to unpackaging, to deepened affections as that object is imprinted with memories throughout its use. Superior quality craft, cleverly conceived graphics, and universal humor are essential to my art, and I hope to bring smiles to the faces of anyone who sees or uses my work.”
Delvin Goode was born in 1978 in Riverside, CA. During his undergrad studies at Florida State University (1996-2000), Goode explored multiple mediums, but being enrolled in a ceramic course dramatically shifted his passion in arts. The concept of function, and the idea of patrons using versus viewing his art has been a major motivation in his work ever since. Goode learned from his family that you must maintain a good sense of humor and that was reinforced once he became a U.S. Army Soldier in 2002, where he’s used art throughout his career to raise morale for soldiers. In 2015 Goode started a master’s degree program in fine arts at Fort Hays State University and began a focused exploration of ceramics. He graduated in 2021 with a Master of Ceramics degree. Currently he executes a delicate dance between life as a soldier and the ever-present desires of an aspiring artist.
