Microgalleries

Microgalleries are small-scale exhibition spaces where art is displayed for public viewing. Their importance lies in democratizing access to art by bringing it into everyday spaces, fostering community engagement, supporting local artists, and enriching the cultural experience of patrons who may not otherwise visit traditional art galleries.

What is a Microgallery?

The Center for the Arts (CFA) works with local businesses and galleries to exhibit local artwork year-round at the following locations. A "microgallery" offers a vital platform for local artists to showcase their work in a more intimate and accessible setting. For emerging artists, it provides a valuable opportunity to gain exposure and connect with their community on a personal level. 

Additionally, microgalleries often foster collaboration and dialogue between artists and viewers, nurturing a supportive and inclusive creative ecosystem that can help artists develop their practice and build a dedicated audience base. Overall, a microgallery serves as a stepping stone for local artists, enabling them to share their vision, cultivate relationships, and contribute to the cultural vibrancy of their surroundings.
