Many people are surprised to learn there is a beautiful art gallery located in Historic St. Agnes Cemetery that displays artwork and is the setting for professionally guided art classes throughout the year.  The concept of an art gallery in a cemetery is a bit different to say the least.  The Gallery serves as a means for local artists to create, exhibit and sell their work. The museum quality tracks and cables are strong and secure, offering a safe and attractive means to display art.

If you are an artist in the Capital District interested in exhibiting work, contact our Gallery Manager Kelly Grimaldi at [email protected], or (518) 350-7679.

Exhibits run for 60 days and the artist is offered the opportunity to hold an artist’s reception for friends and family.  We also encourage group shows.
