SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A new gallery created by six artists recently opened its doors in the Beekman Street Arts District, an area known for its creativity. Located at 73 Beekman Street, the Cottage of Art & Design is a treasure trove of unique artwork.

Inside the new gallery, you will find artwork from the following six artists:

  • Amejo Amyot – Painting and Clay Sculpture
  • Meg Dalton – Fiber Arts
  • Meryl Davis – Jewelry and Mosaics
  • Nancy Niefield – Clay Sculpture and Pottery
  • Susan Rivers –  Fiber Arts
  • Don Shore – Custom Tiles

The artists are all in their sixties and seventies. For Susan Rivers, opening a space on Beekman Street is a dream more than a decade old.

“I moved to Saratoga primarily to have an artist presence,” she said.

Once a month during the summer the Beekman Street Arts District hosts a pop-up event where local artists set up on the lawns and porches on the street to showcase their works of art. After this evening’s event from 5 – 8 p.m., the next one is scheduled for Friday, August 12.
