The Kootenay Gallery of Art could be on the move. A public meeting is set for February 26 to discuss finding a more visible location.

Gallery seeking new location

Plans are to remain in Castlegar area

The Kootenay Gallery of Art has been a contributor to the community for more than 30 years with exhibitions and events that support and showcase regional artists as well as artists from outside the region.

The Board of Directors for the Kootenay Gallery engaged in a strategic planning session in March of 2014.  Clear direction was given to staff in the three-year plan to proceed with investigating the relocation of the Gallery facility to a more visible and accessible location within the City of Castlegar.

A relocation sub-committee was established and this committee has been meeting regularly to research and design a strategic approach to the relocation planning process.

The relocation committee has organized a Gallery Relocation Community Round Table in order to give the residents of Castlegar and surrounding communities the opportunity to provide input into this project.

The board and staff of the Kootenay Gallery of Art would like to invite the public to participate in this event to be held at the gallery on Thursday, February 26 at 7 p.m.

Please RSVP your attendance to 250-365-3337 or kootenaygallery@telus.net.
