We were so excited when Erreca Batchelor opened The Springs Gallery in Sharon Springs, New York this summer. The Springs Gallery features her photographic work, as well as that of local artists. (And there are topiaries!!!) The gallery is an elegant addition to Main Street and yet another reason to visit our little village.

A California native, Erreca hails from San Francisco. After completing her Masters in Political Science at UCSB she moved to San Francisco where she studied jazz at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the Jazz School in Berkeley, and Jazz Camp West. Her mentors included Madeline Eastman, Kitty Margolis and Faith Winthrop. She also studied photography as an undergraduate, and at the Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara. While cultivating her artistic passions, Erreca served for 15 years as a hospital executive in the Bay Area, which included directorship appointments at the University of California San Francisco and Stanford University.

Erreca currently resides in Cooperstown, New York, where she lives with her partner Subashini Daniel, MD, a cardiac surgeon operating at Bassett Medical Center and Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery with Columbia University, their beautiful daughter Surya, and super cute French and English Bulldogs, Lila and Dutch.

We were in town last Wednesday. Erreca’s shop was closed, however we were able to peek in the window and view some of the prints on the walls. Amazing photography Erreca!! My husband and I will have to plan ahead next time we are in the area so that we can stop by when you are open.


Bought some goodies at Beekman 1802 and around town too. Really unique items in those shops!
You, Josh and your fellow Sharon Springers are doing an fabulous job restoring that town to it’s former glory.
BTW, two days later we were in Boston and saw a huge advertisement poster along side a building on Newbury St. of two very handsome gentleman;-)
You and Josh will be household names before you know it!
Well done!!!
