171 Cedar Art Center's Houghton Gallery is one of the area's premier visual arts venues. The gallery presents engaging work by living contemporary artists, primarily from the greater Finger Lakes region. Exhibitions, opening receptions, and gallery talks are free of charge. Special lectures and group tours can be arranged. Since first opening the Bruce House doors in 1968, 171 Cedar Arts Center has provided the community with a warm, friendly home in which to explore the arts. Over the years, with help from our supporters and our outstanding faculty we’ve grown into an award-winning organization that provides top-quality programming and instruction. But, along the way, we have preserved a distinct, hometown flavor that makes access to the arts comfortable for everyone.
