My girlfriend and I are running up to Ithaca, New York in a few weeks to
visit the Finger Lakes. Does anyone know of any "must see" galleries in
that area? We are primarily interested in clay work but would also like
to check out some of the painting/print oriented places too.
Thanks in advanced,

Here are some suggestions:
Farmer's Market, Saturday especially. There are at least two potters and whole
lot of other neat stuff, good food, often music. Get a big cinnamon roll, some
coffee, sit by the water and enjoy the scene.
Stop by Littlestone Gallery on the inlet as you head to downtown.
State of the Art Gallery on State street often has interesting art.
A few doors away is Handwork, a co-op store with several potters and lots of other
One block north is the DeWitt Mall, a converted high school building with four
eateries including Moosewood Restaurant, and two galleries - Upstairs Gallery and
Sola Gallery that are both worth a visit.
Back down to State Street, which now becomes a pedestrian mall called the Commons,
there is the original People's Pottery and the very original 15 Steps right across
One block further is the Community School of Music and Art which right now has a
fabulous show (my husband's paintings and digital art - hurry or you'll miss it!).
Then you have to stop by my place on your way to the Johnson Museum, Cornell
campus. At the museum, check out the view from the fifth floor plus some good
ancient pots. They always have at least one really interesting show there.
Finish up with an essential and mind boggling tour of the Everson Museum's ceramic
collection in Syracuse. Or how about a side trip to Alfred?
