The Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery is the dynamic, vital center for the visual arts in the Monadnock Region, encompassing the best of the traditional and contemporary worlds.
The original gallery was a gift to Keene State College and the community from beaTrix Sagendorph, artist and benefactor, in memory of her mother, Louise E. Thorne, in 1965. The gallery was then located in Keene State's Mason Library.
In 1976, the Thorne became the Thorne-Sagendorph Memorial Art Gallery, when a new wing was dedicated to beaTrix's husband, Robb Sagendorph, founder and publisher of Yankee magazine.
The current gallery, which opened November 1993 to its first exhibit, a retrospective of works by Jules Olitski, continues to fulfill its original mission - to encourage a broader and deeper appreciation of the visual arts.
Guided gallery tours are offered. All exhibits, receptions, and programs are free and open to the public.
