North Country Arts Center opened the Art in Chestertown Gallery in July 2010 for what was meant to be only a six-week exhibit. Since then, it has grown and grown and is now an ongoing venture! During its run, the gallery has shown works by more than one hundred local and regional artists.
North Country Arts Center is a non-profit cultural organization dedicated to encouraging and assisting emerging artists and artisans in the southeastern Adirondack region.
