Safe Harbors’ award winning Ann Street Gallery provides exhibitions, events and programs that encourage a greater public understanding and appreciation of contemporary art across cultures and between generations.
Since opening its doors in 2007, the Ann Street Gallery has brought the finest in contemporary art from across the county and around the globe to downtown Newburgh, creating a cultural hub in the community that is free, open and accessible to neighbors and visitors alike and earning the distinction of being a four-time winner of Best Gallery in the Hudson Valley by the readers of the Times Herald Record.
Under the umbrella of Safe Harbors of the Hudson, a nonprofit organization that combines supportive housing and the arts, the gallery has evolved into a venue that has supported hundreds of artists through a highly respected exhibition program and community events. The unique 1700 square foot gallery hosts a new exhibition approximately every six weeks, featuring established and emerging artists who work in a wide cross-section of media and divergent genres.
One of the only visual art venues in the City of Newburgh, the Ann Street Gallery is strategically located in a vibrant neighborhood of shops and restaurants, proximate to the Newburgh waterfront and a ferry-ride across the Hudson River to Dia:Beacon, a major contemporary art center.
The gallery brings contemporary art to a new population and provides an opportunity for creative exploration on an unparalleled scale within the City of Newburgh, creating a destination that nourishes the arts and enhances the positive cultural energy in the community.
