The Niagara Arts & Cultural Center has reopened its red doors to the public.
A press release stated, “The NACC is back and ready for our community and tourists to come visit us! We have many events lined up and are ready to showcase our talented Niagara County artists.”
Hours of operation are noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday at 1201 Pine Ave., Niagara Falls.
On view right now is Michael Kudela's solo exhibition, "What We Think About When It Rains." The exhibit runs until June 30.
Kudela, a poet, painter, sculptor and son of former Executive Director Kathie Kudela – tragically passed away in 2014 at the age of 44. It was always Kathie's dream to display work in his honor. The staff at the NACC decided to see her wishes through and hold one of their biggest shows to date.
Works are highly collectible and sought-after. A silent auction will be held until Saturday, June 19 for those who wish to purchase art. The estate of Kathie and Michael donated these works to the NACC, with all proceeds going toward the gallery fund. Bidding forms can be found at the NACC or by emailing [email protected].
A special closing reception will be held from noon until 2 p.m. June 19. Collectors will be in attendance to place their final bids. Auction winners will be notified June 20 and payment will be due at that time.
