About the Arkell Museum at Canajoharie

Bartlett Arkell, the founder and first president of the Beech-Nut Packing Company built the original Canajoharie Gallery in 1927, for the people of Canajoharie, and the collection has grown and expanded from there. The American painting collection includes seven oil paintings by Winslow Homer, all currently on display, and significant paintings by many distinguished artists including; Thomas Benton, William M. Chase, Childe Hassam, John Singer Sargent, Albert Bierstadt, and Gilbert Stuart. Permanent and changing exhibitions also feature selections from the museum’s Mohawk Valley History collection as well as the Beech-Nut archives of early twentieth-century advertising material. A major addition to the Canajoharie Library and Art Gallery was completed in 2007 through the generosity of the Arkell Hall Foundation.

Exhibitions are supported in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
