Art Gallery


The Great Neck Arts Center presents exhibitions of art works by accomplished New York, National and International contemporary artists, as well as special exhibits originating from the collections of notable galleries and museums worldwide. Our mission is to present art that reflects the diversity of tastes, backgrounds and cultures that contribute to its remarkable richness of life. Thousands of school children and adults visit the Gallery annually and participate in customized docent tours and hands-on art-making activities. Opening receptions are free and open to the public giving the viewer an opportunity meet the artist and to mingle with other art lovers. GNAC's Art Detective program and Artist Talks and Lectures also educate and engage visitors of all ages. For more information on any of these programs, please read below or call the Arts Center at 516-829-2570.
