About the Show
Canal Street Art Gallery presents: The Canal Street Art Gallery Represented Artist Show at Main Street Arts. Opening July 1st and on view to the public through August 12th, this group show is a collaborative exhibition featuring artwork from the Canal Street Art Gallery’s roster of represented artists and curated by the Bellows Falls gallery in the galleries of Main Street Arts, located in nearby Saxtons River. Recognizing a similarity in their missions these local arts organizations work together to strengthen the arts community in the Town of Rockingham, Vermont. To celebrate this collaboration and to support the arts in Rockingham, Canal Street Art Gallery will donate 15% of the total sales of artwork included in this show to MSA. Visit the art exhibit during public open hours from 12 to 5 PM every Friday and Saturday, and during Summer Music programming, Theater Performances of Hamlet, and online at canalstreetartgallery.com. Please visit Main Street Arts online at mainstreetarts.org for additional hours. Meet the Artists at the Reception on Friday July 8th from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.

Main Street Arts, an arts institution of over thirty years, is a catalyst for the arts in southern Vermont. A place of inclusion, it provides a gathering space where all are welcome, regardless of experience, ability, age, or financial resources. MSA works tirelessly to offer opportunities that nurture both the artistic and the larger human spirit and to provide a place to explore yourself and your art, find deep friendships and acceptance, grow, and be nurtured.
The Canal Street Art Gallery represents and exhibits local artists working in all styles and mediums while holding an open space where all creative voices may be heard to build awareness, community, and the benefits from a creative economy for all. Important to the Canal Street Art Gallery’s mission is the recognition of art-making as both income and expense to the artist. The selling of an artist's work can have a direct effect on their ability to afford the time and materials necessary to create more. Canal Street Art Gallery takes pride in showing art with a wide range of pricing from low to moderate, making the purchase of original art attainable to all collectors including the seasoned, new, and unexpected.
