Saturday, January 21
4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Third-Floor Ballroom

Local visual artists who have displayed works in the Colonial Center’s main gallery throughout 2016, or who will be featured gallery exhibitors in 2017, will be on-site to greet the public during these hours.

Admission for the event is absolutely free-of-charge! Each artist will have a small collection of works on display at their station in the ballroom, and some will have prints and merchandise available for purchase.

There will be complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar on-site. In addition to having a chance to meet some wonderfully talented artists, this event will be a fantastic opportunity for people to find out more about what the Colonial Center’s galleries have to offer, and to obtain information about how to become a featured exhibitor in 2018 and beyond.

We hope to make “Meet the Artist” an annual event! So come out and show your support of visual arts in our area, have some fun, and view some amazing works created right here, close to home.

For more information about the reception or to find out how to have your works displayed in our galleries, please contact Karen Terry via email at, or call her in the Colonial Center’s Box Office at 434-262-4170. Karen is in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
