Drop by the Woodstock Art Gallery’s new home
November 22, 2011 by Chloe
The Woodstock Art Gallery has recently moved to a new home on Dundas Street. The ribbon cutting and grand opening takes place on November 19 at 1:30 pm; refreshments will be sold and Mayor Sobeski will be in attendance. Since it opened in 1967, the gallery has had many homes; finally it has a permanent structure in downtown Woodstock.
A display by the Ontario Society of Artists called pARTners: a collaboration will also open on that day and will be a continuing exhibit which will tour in 2012. Musical entertainment will be provided by David Jolly and those in attendance will be invited to stick around and have some free hot chocolate while they watch the Santa Claus parade pass by
In order to highlight that the Woodstock Art Gallery has a new permanent home, the gallery should arrange with local printing companies to help them create a low-cost direct mail marketing campaign. Many people in the community might not be aware of the gallery at all; receiving a flyer or a brochure describing the programs offered will make those people more inclined to plan a visit or take a class.
The Woodstock Art Gallery offers free admission. The gallery has the largest collection of post-impressionist art by Florence Carlyle anywhere. The gallery also holds art appreciation courses, a monthly film series, art classes for children and adults and art appreciation workshops. Their mission is “to provide a centre in our community for the enrichment and enjoyment of the visual arts.”
