Forced to look for a new home by a rent increase at its current location, Albany Center Gallery has found a new home just down the street at the Arcade Building on Broadway in downtown Albany.

The 40-year-old non-profit gallery is planning to move into the new 2,050-square-foot exhibition space in January. The new space is approximately 300 square feet larger than the gallery’s current location on Columbia Street across from Tricentennial Park.

“The Arcade, across from Jim Dinapoli Park, symbolizes a new era in downtown where traditional buildings can be put to new contemporary and modern uses,” said Tony Iadicicco, executive director of Albany Center Gallery. “This will create a home in which artists will be proud to showcase their art, while bringing a new energy to an underutilized landmark.”

The Arcade Building will mark the gallery’s fifth location, since it was founded by Les Urbach at the Capital District Psychiatric Center in Albany in 1977.
