Welcome to the Adirondack Art Association!

We are a non-profit organization devoted to the encouragement of art and community in the Adirondack region of Northern New York State.

Our Gallery is located on Main Street in the historic village of Essex, NY, on the shores of scenic Lake Champlain.

It features the diverse work of over 50 Exhibiting Members. The artists of the Association reside in Essex, Clinton, Warren, and Hamilton Counties, yet their work is known and appreciated far beyond our region.

The Gallery is a window on the creative spirit at work in the North Country, in media ranging from oils, watercolors and pastels to ceramics, glass and photography.

We invite you to explore our site, visit our gallery and experience the creativity at the center of our vibrant community!
