Since the move into their larger facility, this art museum has upped their game considerably. Most enjoyable way to spend an hour or 2, especially on a rainy day.

The View seems to have the pulse of the area with some very fine local artists, photographers, crafts persons work on display. It seemed to be more of a community family place than a museum but it certainly adds a charm to the town of Old Forge

This place is beautiful and a recent curated exhibit of bird-related paintings (mostly) was very well done. I attended a workshop there and would definitely go back. The staff and members are all very friendly, the facility is top notch.

You cannot believe you are far away from Chicago or NYC. The various and ever changing shows of art work in various medium are sights to behold. Many classes in various medium are offered throughout the year. First rate performances to delight everyone's taste are also offered throughout the year. Come to view the View!

Always interesting to visit the local art on display. Music, crafts. Very nice new building. Give this a look, especially on a rainy afternoon. You won't be disappointed.

Had a great time making glass plates and pottery. Barb was so great with the group we all had fun .Some of the group painted pottery and some of us did the glass plates. No experience needed to do this.

They had the adirondack watercolor exhibition while we were there, and the artwork was outstanding. My one complaint would be that most of the artwork is not by local artists, of whom there are so many outstanding ones.
