$74,800 OTF GRANT RE-OPENS RED DOOR GALLERY
We are thrilled to announce that Red Door Gallery will re-open at 69 Main Street South, downtown Georgetown in June. Following the gallery’s closure last December, Doug Pattison, developer of The Hotel McGibbon offered the gallery a new home for the coming year, and help to prepare the space for occupancy. The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) grant was secured by the gallery’s original partner, Halton Hills Cultural Roundtable. It will cover operating expenses to reopen the gallery, which will also offer artist in residence and emerging artists studios. New programs will augment the gallery’s reputation for visual art, spoken word and music events.
“This is great news for the Halton Hills Cultural Roundtable,” said Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott. “I want to express my thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation and thank everyone involved with the Halton Hills Cultural Roundtable for their outstanding support of the arts in our community.”
Doug Pattison said “A gallery like Red Door helps to retain the character, vibrance and charm of our historic downtown area. We look forward to partnering with Red Door Gallery to show the best of GTA West artists’ work.”
