This small jewel-box of a gallery on a street lined with mansions hosts superb shows, with perhaps the most notable being the annual Quilts=Art=Quilts show. This event showcases work by outstanding quilters from all over the world and the quality of the pieces is astonishing.

The art is always changing. They hold classes downstairs and sometimes have shows on the third floor. Free parking in the back. They have an elevator. Gift shop with all kinds of items.

Been there multiple times-for specific shows. Art for the most part in my opinion is overated. Some good some absolute garbage. Seem to love knitted work (yawn). They might try to fine some people with a broader palette to judge what goes up here.

We're sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit. We try to represent a variety of different media at the Schweinfurth, including a juried contemporary art show of New York State artists every spring called Made in NY. I would recommend visiting that show.

El Esposo and I visited here for their opening in conjunction with Auburn's "First Fridays." The gallery was small but nice, with typical art gallery opening fare: Cheese, crackers and vino. Food and beverages were not allowed in the gallery--understandable-- but that meant
