Reception to celebrate gallery’s re-opening
Gallery 25 in New Milford will hold a grand re-opening reception July 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. at its new location.
The gallery moved from Church Street to the railroad station on Railroad Street a few months ago.
Refreshments will be served and many artists will be available to discuss their works consisting of paintings, photography, jewelry, pottery, glass, fiber and more.
“We are so thrilled to be open in our new location,” said Diane Dubreuil, gallery director. “It’s a beautiful space to showcase the artwork of some incredibly talented artists from western Connecticut.
“We couldn’t have made a successful transition without the vision and support of Mayor David Gronbach, Economic Development Director Kevin Bielmeier and New Milford Commission on the Arts. We are so grateful,” Dubreuil said.
Gronbach said he is “so happy with the work that the Commission on the Arts and the gallery does in providing an outlet and a forum for art in New Milford.”
“The new location is a great fit for our downtown, and I thank all of the people involved in moving and maintaining this ever evolving project,” the mayor said.
“There is a small park to the side of the station that would make a great sculpture garden. We'll see what next year brings” Gronbach said.
With guidance from the New Milford Commission on the Arts, Gallery 25 was founded in the fall of 2014 as a cooperative-style art gallery representing local and regional award-winning artists and artisans.
Gallery exhibitions, both then and now, include a wide variety of unique fine art and fine artisan creations in a wide range of media.
Renewing interest and growth in the local art scene is a priority of the gallery and its member artists.
The gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
