Manufacturers of Creativity


The Foundry is a creative and cultural services firm at its core. But that’s not all. We foster innovative collaborations between creatives, civic and educational institutions, non-profits and businesses—we make more viable, livable and imaginative communities.

Branding + Identity

Something this important needs to be done right the first time. Don’t leave a project so important in untrained hands.

Print + Web Design

Print is not dead and your website has far more potential than serving as an online brochure. We understand the need for both.

Video + Photography

Video allows you to create and share remarkable content with your audience in a way that plain text or still images will never match. But a picture is still worth a thousand words.

Marketing + Social Media

Bringing it all together with just the right mix and consistent messaging provides for maximum impact. We’re your marketing and social media friends with benefits.

Curatorial + Art Leasing

Commissions, artist advisement, curatorial and exhibition services are just the start. We offer private art sales and art leasing as well as specialized art project management.

Cultural Services

Specialized services for creatives, cities, schools, businesses and non-profits. Helping artists think like entrepreneurs and helping entrepreneurs think like artists.

We are passionate about the potential impact art, design, commerce, and education have on building healthy and vibrant communities. Let's Work Together

Historic Albany Foundation

The Foundry’s art and events gallery is a classic white space, with stone floors (and the building’s original bank vault) but the exhibits it hosts tend toward the cutting-edge of innovation, with a notable inclusion of illustration, print, and conceptual graphics. In addition to artist talks and showings, the Foundry also throws the most interesting cocktail parties in town. —Metroland
