The Kirkland Art Center was established over 50 years ago in the second floor of the town library as a meeting place. From the beginning there were classes, exhibitions, films, concerts and lectures. The KAC is now an active, regional, multi-arts center, located in an old church, barn and connecting addition, on the village green. The nature of the activities and mission has stayed steadfast, but with the support of the community, members, volunteers, funding sources and guidance from the NYSCA, our programming has broadened. Demonstrating quality, diversity and multi-cultural programming, both at our facility and off-site, the KAC has become a major cultural force in central New York and through cooperation with other cultural institutions has developed a network of services and opportunities for artists and art lovers of all disciplines.
Our administrative offices are open 9:30-4:30, Monday, Tuesday & Friday, and 9:30-6:00 on Wednesday & Thursday.
Gallery hours are 10:00-4:30 Monday-Friday, with extended hours on Thursday until 7:00pm or by appointment.
