At today’s open house, the Rome Art & Community Center, 308 W. Bloomfield St., spotlighted what’s new for the new year. Visitors got a close-up look into what the center has planned for the upcoming year, as well as the chance to see two new exhibits.
Local cartoonist Frank Page and artist Duane Womack showcased installations in the upstairs galleries. Music was provided by the Alliance Classical players, those attending had a chance to meet Owl & the Silver Moon pre-school teacher Kathleen Bruno, and even the option to purchase advance sale tickets to additional winter and spring events.
This wide variety of events shows what a gem the Art & Community Center is with its myriad of special events, activities and exhibits. For more information, visit www.romeart.org or call the center at 315-336-1040.
The new RACC vision was formulated through a collaboration with Artistree Studios & Gallery, as well as the formation of a new planning committee known as Art In The Center. The committee consists of professionals from several disciplines in the “arts”— visual arts, performance art, dance, classical and contemporary music, and more. Besides old favorites like Halloween and Holiday House, plans are made for new attractions like the Adult Prom on Feb. 9.
Workshops and classes within these arts disciplines will be scheduled during the year.
Artistree Studios & Gallery also hosted an open house during this time, as well as an opening reception for Page and Womack. Artistree is located in the Carriage House on the grounds of the Rome Art & Community Center.
