Gallery North is pleased to announce the groundbreaking for the new Community Art Center (CAC) at Gallery North on Monday, October 20 at 9:00am.
The expansion of the current studio space will allow the growth of Gallery North’s Visual Arts programming. Spanning 1,500 sq. ft., the CAC will provide much needed space for art classes, arts in healthcare programs, printmaking and photography. The added square footage will enable the Community Art Center to offer innovative fine arts education and outreach activities for children and adults, advanced workshop opportunities and collaborative studio space for artists, inspiring ArTalks presented by local and visiting artists, and an arts related film and discussion series.
Embarking on its 50th year, Gallery North is committed to expanding the arts and culture in the Three Village community and surrounding areas. The CAC will add vitality to the region by making art more accessible to experienced artists and individuals with an emerging interest in art.
Attending the groundbreaking ceremony will be State Assemblyman Steve Englebright, Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn, and Jennifer Martin on behalf of Town of Brookhaven Councilwoman, Valerie Cartright. Remarks will be given by Paul Lamb, President of the Gallery North Board of Trustees, and Judith Levy, Director, Gallery North.
