The Beresford Gallery returns to Saratoga for 31st year; Motivational program leader partners with local businesses
SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Beresford Gallery will re-open this Friday, August 5, in the Shoe Depot building at 385 Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
Based in Unionville, Pa., the gallery exhibits annually in the Hamptons, Wellington and Saratoga Springs as well as in Florida during the winter months.
Founded over 40 years ago, the Beresford Gallery specializes in sporting-themed paintings, statues and sculptures — with a Saratoga specialty in equine and racing centered work.

Throughout the 15 day stay on Broadway, the Beresford will feature artists painting at the gallery and customers will have the chance to commission their own personal piece by a Beresford artist.
The gallery will be open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. between August 5 and 20. For more information stop by 385 Broadway or call 583-4523.
