A walkable tour of art openings every first Friday

We apologize for the inconvenience.  April’s Gallery Night, originally scheduled for Friday, April 3, 2020 is cancelled due to the National State of Emergency surrounding COVID-19. 
For the time being, we plan to resume Gallery Night in May.  Please join us on Friday, May 1st to support local artists and local businesses in an effort to rebound from this health pandemic.
Some galleries will have artwork up for display for the month of April and their exhibit details will be displayed below.

The Downtown Ithaca Alliance welcomes you to Gallery Night Ithaca presented by Tompkins Trust Company, a walkable tour of art openings and other special cultural events in and around downtown Ithaca, New York taking place from 5:00-8:00 PM on the first Friday of every month. With upwards of twenty venues to visit to explore each month, there is sure to be something that will catch your eye, whether you’re a seasoned collector or a first-time browser.

Gallery Night Ithaca is sponsored by the Tompkins Trust Company and in part by the Community Arts Partnership*.
