We were walking down Broadway earlier this week & spotted a piece in Spa Fine Art's Gallery that caught our eye. Three hours later, we wrapped up an impromptu gallery tour & took a few pictures along the way. We visited Spa Fine Art's Gallery, The Niche Gallery, Silverwood Home & Gallery and Saratoga Arts Center.
It was great getting to know some of the local artists featured in our downtown galleries and we will have to do another gallery hop soon & pop into Spring Street Gallery, (who are having this great show on Saturday) & Beekman Street Gallery, amongst others.
We loved all of the work at Spa Fine Art's Gallery on Broadway including the pieces on the left by Greg Montgomery. If they look familiar, that's probably because you've seen his series of posters for the Traver's Stakes.
The Niche Gallery is a hidden gem tucked in the first floor of 480 Broadway and is quite unique, as a portion of all sales are donated to non-profits. Walking into the Gallery, we immediately stopped at the gorgeous photographs from Lisa Miller and her Foal Project Series. The sales of Lisa's series (taken from over 30 thoroughbred foalings) benefit equine assisted therapies & awareness. There were also several other pieces of mixed-media, including beautiful fabric creations from Greentree Fabric Arts that were simply stunning.
Saratoga Arts Center had a fun "ALL STARS' show going on, featuring the works of several talented local high school artists. We loved the exquisite photograph & ceramic piece below, both made by Saratoga Springs High School students.
