NOW & THEN
HGA artists 10 Anniversary
Jan 24, 2017 – Feb 19, 2017
Open­ing Recep­tion: Jan 27th, 6-9pm

Mem­bers of the Hills­bor­ough Gallery of Arts are cel­e­brat­ing their 10th Anniver­sary by invit­ing all artists who have at one time been a mem­ber to bring a cur­rent art­work into the gallery for our Fea­tured Exhibit this month. 

Opened in Sep­tem­ber of 2006 by 15 artists with lit­tle busi­ness expe­ri­ence who barely knew each other, the gallery was a leap of faith. Over the years the gallery has enlarged its space and taken in new artists and is now run by 21 mem­bers — equal part­ners who make most deci­sions by con­sen­sus. Fea­tured artist shows, group shows, and juried shows cre­ate a strong rela­tion­ship between the artists and the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity. Now & Again, the lat­est group show, is HGA’s way of cel­e­brat­ing with all of the tal­ented artists and friends who have made the gallery a suc­cess. Now & Again will run from Jan­u­ary 25 through Feb­ru­ary 19th with an open­ing recep­tion on Jan­u­ary 27th 6 – 9 pm.
