We visited this past weekend and loved the "Made in NY" show. The exhibits and installations were very impressive for such a small place. We look forward to re-visiting as new shows are offered. Also, visit the Cayuga Museum of Art and History - right next door! Big building, but only a couple of historical signs outside. Out back, you can walk thru the "Birthplace of Talking Motion Pictures"...no kidding. The inside has worthwhile exhibits too, not to mention a beautiful 19th century home with a Tiffany window.

While a small gallery space, the Schweinfurth exhibits a wide range of art from contemporary art quilts in Quilts =Art= Quilts to the talents of New York State artists in the current show Made in New York. The gift shop is great for local crafts and other fine gifts with a twist. They participate in "First Friday", a community open house plus Openings, concerts, lectures, artist tours, poetry readings, art camp for kids and so much more.
