City Hall Gallery for Kenmore

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Kenmore City Council has approved an agreement with the Arts of Kenmore of to oversee operation of a new City Hall Gallery.

The City Hall Gallery will allow for the display of approximately 16 paintings on an ongoing basis on an art wall at City Hall. The art wall is a design feature of the building and the partnership between the City of Kenmore and the Arts of Kenmore allows the city to move forward with its goal of showcasing local artists. Access to this special venue is free and will provide the public with an opportunity to view the unique talent of participating artists.

AOK will take the lead, in cooperation with the City, on call for artists, jury submissions, organizing openings, and handling the myriad necessary details.

The Arts of Kenmore is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to encourage and promote all forms of the arts by the citizens of the area for the enrichment of the community. Since 1998, the Arts of Kenmore has produced the annual Kenmore Art Show. Hundreds of local artists have the opportunity to exhibit their work and the City of Kenmore is presented annually with a work of art from the show.

The Arts of Kenmore provides support to Kenmore area school arts programs by assisting the funding of needed materials. In addition, we assist the Northshore PTA with its annual Reflections show.
