New Look. New Home. Same Passion.
For 39 years, The Latcham Gallery has served the community of Whitchurch-Stouffville by providing engaging and exhibitions and opportunities for everyone to express their creativity. On August 23, The Latcham Gallery will move to its new home at 2 Park Drive with a new name: Latcham Art Centre.
“We are very excited to announce that once we move to our new home, we will be known as Latcham Art Centre”, says Director Roz Pritchard. “Latcham Art Centre embodies what we do as the visual arts hub in Whitchurch-Stouffville. The new centre will feature a larger exhibition space where we will host year-round exhibitions, artist talks and events, as well as an expanded art studio filled with natural light that will inspire all ages to learn and get creative.”
“Our team is excited about this new name which acknowledges our growth over the past nearly forty years“, says Pritchard. “Through a year-long process, our board and staff have had the opportunity to explore how we want to present ourselves as we move into our new home. We want our name to best reflect the visual arts resource we provide for our visitors, whether through the professional contemporary art exhibitions we present or in the studio through the arts education programs we offer with professional artist educators.”
The building will come alive with creativity, thought-provoking exhibitions and opportunities to make art. The Latcham Art Centre is for everyone: visitors, school groups, tourists, artists, kids, grandparents, art lovers, newbies, fitness centre members, sports teams, library patrons, ….everyone!
Join the team and become a Latcham Art Centre volunteer! Youth and adults will be able to learn new skills and contribute as volunteers assisting with art programs, gallery reception, special events etc.
Latcham Art Centre will be located at 2 Park Drive, Stouffville, ON L4K 4K1.
