About View Arts

View Arts encourages the creation and the contemplative experience of viewing art by hosting exhibitions with regional and national appeal. Artists are featured in conjunction with a diverse spectrum of notable national shows. The Arts Guild of Old Forge was founded by Miriam Kashiwa in 1951, when she first organized an arts show on her front lawn with paintings displayed on chicken wire. From its humble beginnings moving all over town from the fire hall to the former Nathan’s Bakery, a room in the Mason’s building, the Thendara train station, and over thirty years in a former boat repair shop, the arts center has flourished through the years. It has grown steadily to become a year-round multi-arts organization. In 2011, the Arts Center/Old Forge moved across New York State Route 28 into its new facility. It was re-branded as View Arts.
