Performing arts and visual arts are vital in Fulton County; community theater and civic bands are a presence in both Johnstown and Gloversville. There are a number of art galleries in the county, including the Perrella Gallery at Fulton-Montgomery Community College in Johnstown, the Art Gallery housed at the Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Micropolis Art Gallery in Gloversville. There also are several smaller galleries throughout Fulton County operated by individual artists who work in various media including metal, oil, watercolors, textiles and wood. Additionally, the Sacandaga Valley Arts Network, an all-volunteer, not-for-profit, cultural development entity, annually sponsors concerts, home-studio visits, slide shows, lectures and field trips. They also curate a gallery at the Vail Mills Tourism Information Center at the intersection of Routes 29 and 30 in Vail Mills.
The Glove Performing Arts Center in Gloversville and Colonial Little Theatre in Johnstown offer great community theater. Libraries are located in the cities of Gloversville and Johnstown, and in the villages of Mayfield and Northville.
