In The News

The artists that love/work at/run Gallery 54 are a group of passionate men and women, passionate about their chosen art/craft.  We work hard to produce only the best for the gallery. We put in time …. not always recorded on the hours log …to make Gallery 54 a place that our customers will want to visit again and again.
As of this musing one of our painters was in the news again. Kathy Schneider’s work was used to promote the Dickens Christmas by the Post Standard. If you haven’t yet experienced “A Dickens Christmas” in Skaneateles you are in for a treat.  Starting the day after Thanksgiving, weekends are alive with your favorite characters from A Christmas Carole. So come on out… bring your friends…. Stay for the day…. Shop…..Shop…..Shop.
Our First Friday feature is “Best if Used: Functional Pottery by Jim Burke" opening Friday November 4 from 6-9 pm at the Gallery. We will have live entertainment by Christopher Molloy and his Electric Blue Harp and wine tasting by Giancarelli Winery.  Man…. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Color….. no other time is it more spectacular in Central New York than in Autumn. A drive down any street or road – a stroll beside the lake – down a path along a river – everywhere the eyes rest will be glorious color. The garden flowers are finishing up their stay even as the first leaves fall from the branches above. We turn our gaze upward and are greeted with reds, oranges, yellows, greens and browns of the turning foliage.
The artists at Gallery 54 bring these beautiful colors to their work. Always evolving – ever changing, the gallery is filled with the shapes and colors of the season.
Our October featured artists are Terry Askey-Cole and Donna Smith. They present Autumn Hues, a collection of ceramics, assemblages and jewelry.
We are open to inspire the artist in everyone every day as we celebrate Autumn in Skaneateles.
