A PERMANENT GALLERY :
Palatine Inverness Arts Council has been scouring the area
for A Permanent Gallery and Cultural Arts Facility. We
are currently looking for space, preferably in the downtown
area, for showcasing artists and holding workshops with
an area for artisans to meet and be mentored by more experienced
artisans in the community and artists at large. We desire
space where we can provide educational programs for the
community as well as performance and rehearsal space.
As we grow we hope to provide financial
assistance to our aspiring artisans and local theatre
groups such as Spinning Tales Collective, Music on Stage,
and the Wood Street Theatre.
