CTAC Exhibits for 2014-15

Hm-2014-JFA-imagesWelcome to Fall!

After a wonderful summer at CTAC we have rebooted the entire gallery format and all four galleries are installed with new exhibitions to welcome the changing season. With dual openings on September 20th the main level of CTAC will present the work of the Great Lakes Plein Air Painters Association in the Edith Gilbert Gallery and the 2014 Juried Fine Arts Exhibition in the Ermy B. & Gordon B. Bonfield Gallery.

The Glasswork of Lynn Dinning kicks off a new season of Atrium Gallery exhibits with an opening on Friday September 12 from 4-6 pm for members and guests of CTAC. The Art Tree Sales Gallery will be reinstalled on the main floor with new work and a fresh look. There will be several Coffee at Ten experiences to support the exhibition schedule this fall so please take the time to look at the events schedule and be a part of the lecture series.

Our programming is always evolving. We encourage you to peruse the website at all levels, take the time to visit the galleries, witness a concert, take a class and get involved!
