High Falls Fine Art Gallery

Rochester believes strongly in its artistic community, and has established a unique gallery dedicated to the year round display and sale of work by local artists. Since its first exhibit in 1992, the Center at High Falls has represented more than 2000 area artists. You may also find solo exhibits in the first floor museum areas, where art displays enhance permanent historical exhibits. The variety of exhibits, appropriate for all ages to enjoy, include painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, weaving and much more. The gallery is available for rental for moderately sized meetings and gatherings.

The two main galleries, located on the second floor of the Center, are considered one of the most beautiful exhibit spaces in the area. They feature high ceilings, richly textured original brick walls (1873,) and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the dramatic Genesee River Gorge.
