Bravo for 25 Anniversary Exhibition
“Bravo for 25” is a collection of work of the founding members of the Gallery, together with past and present members of Arts Place celebrating the Gallery’s 25th Anniversary. The display of artwork by notable artists will span the Gallery’s entire history to present day and the exhibition is on through July 30th.
To provide a brief history, it was in March 1992, eleven area artists took a leap of faith and opened Arts Place Gallery, a contemporary fine arts and crafts collective for the promotion of the arts and a window to their studios, at its present location, 714 King St., Port Colborne. Arts Place Gallery’s mandate provides ongoing exhibition space for its members and monthly solo exhibitions of area artists in all genres. Cultural excellence over the years has provided support for developing artists and various community initiatives such as workshops, musical and visual events and awards for continuing art education, while encouraging the appreciation and understanding for the art experience.
We cordially invite you to join the artists, loyal volunteers, friends and patrons to commemorate the anniversary of one of the creatively committed cultural institutions of Port Colborne. Please visit us on Sunday, July 9th, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Gallery, 714 King Street, Port Colborne, and celebrate with those who have helped make the Arts Place Gallery experience possible for the past 25 years by generously supporting its programs, exhibits and the artists. Refreshments and cake will be provided and your presence would be much appreciated.
Gallery Hours: 12n – 4:30pm, Thursday through Sunday.
