CURRENT GALLERY EXHIBIT!!! In the Underground Gallery at The Sanctuary for Independent Media, we bring innovative media and visual artists to the Capital Region of New York State, and are dedicated to presenting artists whom mainstream media and art venues often neglect. We especially seek artists who push their art to create new languages and expressive forms; we feature works with an aesthetic and conceptual edge that challenge the viewers to look at the world anew. We strive to inspire people by bringing visibility to cutting edge creative projects and networks, and by using media arts and technology for creative resistance projects designed to motivate citizens to integrate art and independent, critical thinking into their active lives. Check out submissions to our Sanctuary Mural Call for Art! The Underground Gallery’s uniqueness lies in its upstairs large cafe wall and downstairs hallway linearity, allowing the viewer to flow through the space. The walls are painted matte white for traditional gallery appearance and the ceiling exposes extensive track lighting that can be adjusted to suite any exhibit.
