  • Joe MacGown is doing an artist talk on August 28 at 5 pm for MUW students, but it is open to the public. We are trying to target younger patrons, specifically ones from MUW and State, so it would be helpful for them to see members of  the gallery committee and be able to ask them questions.
  • Columbus will be having an art walk on September 5 from 5-7 pm. Downtown businesses are hosting local area artists, and there will be musicians playing on the street corners. A list of participating businesses can be found on Main Street's Facebook page. The CAC and Renee Reedy's studio will also be having openings.
  • During our ARTfordable show in November, Jacquelyn Junkins' class from Annunciation will be showing a project that is inspired by Joe MacGown's work. We will be putting their artwork up in the front of the gallery, near the front desk.

  • Changes to Gallery Committee
    • In our hopes of increasing meeting attendance, we have moved the meeting time from 1 pm to 3 pm. Meetings will still be the third Tuesday of the month unless otherwise noted.
    • Along the same note, in hopes of increasing our team that hangs and takes down shows, we will be taking down shows the Tuesday before the opening of the show and hanging the Wednesday before the opening. However, this is flexible because we understand that some takedowns take less time than others. We will try and have the next show's artwork at the CAC in case there is time to hang on the Tuesday. Of course, this will change if it does not work for the artists.
