The Latcham Gallery will soon be moving into a newly renovated space at the Whitchurch-Stouffville Leisure Centre and will also be launching its 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.
The Latcham Art Centre staff and volunteers will be on hand at the grand opening of the Whitchurch-Stouffville Leisure Centre on June 2, 2018. Get creative and join in our free art activity and talk to staff about the new Latcham Art Centre.
Latcham Art Centre will be located at 2 Park Drive, Stouffville ON.
