New Building Opening Soon

Thank you to all of the guests who joined us for the opening reception of Journey 2012 on May 11th. We were happy to welcome over 300 people to view the Journey 2012 exhibition which was on display in the newly restored building for the evening, as well as an exhibition of artwork from our permanent collection. It was a sneak peek for guests as access to the full building was limited, but excitement and curiosity was certainly in the air. View photos of the evening on Facebook.

Since the May 11th opening reception . . . .

The Journey 2012 portion of the new building was only open for the reception night. After May 11th, the gallery was partially open to the public with the permanent collection on view between May 14 – 25, although intermittent closures have occurred within that time.


In the coming weeks . . . .

The artworks of Journey 2012 were removed from the building for safety while the final stages of construction are being completed on other areas of the new building. Journey 2012 will be available again and will be open to the public after June 22th.
