2011 Gallery Guide

TCFAO challenges you to step outside of your comfort zone by visiting new arts venues. Spend a day musing at the museum; go to the artist opening of someone you’ve never heard of; take a pottery or bookbinding class. Each offers a unique arts experience. Use the Gallery Guide as your checklist.

Email info@twincitiesfinearts.org to request printed Gallery Guides for display your location or for your personal use.
