Art Center’s History
The Claryville Art Center opened with great fanfare in July 2014. The building was originally a barn located in the front of the property. The barn was moved to the rear of the property in 2011 and was completely rebuilt into a two story art gallery large enough for the permanent collection of Alexander Kaletski as well as a separate floor for exhibitions.
