Arts On The Square is a 1,200 sq ft art gallery and retail shop located in the historic Franklin Building in downtown Watertown.

In 2017, Arts on the Square transitioned to an artists’ co-op. Artists host the gallery, and are often found working on projects during their hours. When you visit 52 Public Square, you will find a variety of handmade goods, including:

  • Baskets
  • Paintings & Drawings
  • Pottery
  • Sculpture
  • Soaps & Aromatics

The gallery is prominently featured in the Central Historic District of Watertown, NY, in the beautifully renovated Franklin Building. This building has become a hub for a variety of arts related businesses. Our neighbors in the Franklin Building include:

Arts on the Square is the home of the North Country Arts Council, a 501©3, non-profit organization, whose mission is to promote cultural opportunities in all art forms. Stop in to find that one of a kind gift, to get information about area arts activities, and to visit our neighbors in the Franklin Building.
