promoting our beautiful
and diverse city
and the artists who love it.

This year State of the Art Gallery will again be sponsoring Seeing Ithaca Through the Eyes of Artists. It will take place during the month of August 2024.

Last year’s event included nine galleries, each gallery exhibiting art on the broad theme “Seeing Ithaca”. This year we are expanding the scope to include galleries, artists with studios, and businesses and other venues that show art.

Artists will have their studios open August 10, 12–5. Galleries and other venues will celebrate Gallery Night on August 2, 5–8.

If interested in participating in this event, please contact Seeingithaca@soagithaca.org
