Many artists in the Valley have exhibited their art at the red brick building on Indian School Road known as the Artery since 1998. The Artery housed Studio 6 upstairs and a gallery downstairs that was open every First Friday and on Art Detour weekends. Under new ownership, the owners gave the Artery Artists short notice they needed to vacate the gallery by May 31st during the pandemic. Not being able to have a social gathering, the Artery was not able to have a proper closure after building up popular support and positive vibes over many years. This exhibition celebrates the creativity and commitment of the core collective that ran and Exhibited at the Artery as well as their enduring contribution to supporting the arts and artists for more than two decades.
Open House: Saturday, November 21, noon-6pm
Artist Reception: Saturday, November 21, 6-9pm
Exhibition runs: November 21 – Dec 12.
