Micropolis Art Gallery Filled with Vibrant Variety of Creativity


Micropolis Art Gallery, located inside Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market at 30 N. Main St. continues to be a strong supporter of local visual artists as it recently held a “Meet the Artist Reception" on March 1st. The featured artist is Bob Buck, but the gallery run by Micropolis Cooperative Inc. also has numerous pieces on display ranging from glass work, jewelry, painting, weaves, cards and more.

 


Starting in March 2011, this current March display is also the 13th year the organization dedicated itself to bringing the work of talented regional artists to Downtown Gloversville. This Leader Herald article showcases the hard work and dedication the founding members had when creating this space from an unfurnished, unheated building.

 

In 2023, while daily attendance numbers were not readily available, it was reordered that 1,000 separate purchases occurred that year.

 

While some of the artists are new to the gallery, and the pieces on display are recent creations, the focus remains the same:

 

·       Provide artists with an opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork

·       Build awareness of and support for the regional art community

·       Be a part of the revitalization of downtown Gloversville

 

In an article at livability.com, author Jessica Mozo wrote, “The Micropolis Art Gallery in downtown Gloversville gives art lovers a look at the diversity of visual arts in Fulton County, featuring local artists from a variety of media, including photography, painting and textiles.

Online reviews include this one from Creative Roots Design: “Unique collection of talented artists. Something for everyone. If you appreciate artisan made pottery, art, jewelry, cards, clothing and more, this is a must visit. It is also tucked inside a lovely food co-op with great lunches, coffees, and affordable grocery times... Cozy with great vibes! Highly recommended.” Lauren P. wrote: “Cute little art gallery in the heart of Gloversville, N.Y.”  Mary C.S. 's review includes:” As a new member I find this a very exciting place to show work, meet other artists and enjoy every new show of work exhibited there. It is in the building of the Mohawk Harvest co-op with wonderful coffees, lovely food choices and a warm friendly atmosphere! It’s great to be a part of this art space!


 Hours are Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.


Be sure to grab a cup of coffee and a sweet treat from the Mohawk Harvest and take your time viewing all the pieces on display, and for sale, that were made with hard work, love, and dedication to the craft.
