This just in from Rebecca Schoonmaker, Upstate Artist Guild’s vice president and gallery co-manager:
It is with a heavy heart that we announce to our Upstate Artist Guild supporters that we will be moving out of the gallery space we have called home for 11 years.
247 Lark Street became our home on September 17th 2005 Lark Fest. Many renovations, gallons of paint, LED lighting, blood, sweat and tears have gone into the structure of the space. Over 500 artists have exhibited their work on our walls, on our floors and hanging from our ceiling. We have hosted over 1000 events including years of ASAC (Albany Sonic Arts Collective), WORD FEST (Albany Poets), People’s Choice Show (Art on Lark), Gingerbread FunShop (Winter WonderLark), Albany Spiritual Seekers, Comedy, Drag, Burlesque, Music, Improv, Meetings and more.
