The Franklin Street Gallery has been a staple for the arts in the Watkins Glen community since its founding in 2009. The gallery was established to promote the arts in Watkins Glen, Schuyler County and the surrounding area and to encourage the participation of artists from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. Through exhibits, workshops, and classes, the gallery provides an inclusive space for artists of all abilities. We carry a variety of work from over 50 talented artists from the region.

Watkins Glen and the surrounding areas are rich with history and beauty. Whether you’re a fan of the Finger Lakes landscape with its sweeping views, or a racing history enthusiast, there is something for everyone on our walls. As you explore our online store, you will see an eclectic mix of artwork, sculpture, prints, pottery, jewelry and more. Our space is everchanging as we add new work and curate monthly exhibits. We often host artist receptions, classes and workshops, and even plein air painters on our sidewalk during the hot and busy summer months. There is always something new and exciting to experience at Franklin Street Gallery.


The Franklin Street Gallery is owned and operated by The Arc of Chemung-Schuyler, a family based organization providing supports to individuals with varying abilities. Along with six other businesses that make up The Arc of Chemung-Schuyler’s Business Services Division, Franklin Street Gallery offers volunteering, employment, and vocational training opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The gallery provides opportunities to enrich the lives of people with developmental disabilities through art, and allows The Arc to provide a unique service to local artists and the community.

We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
