Cranbrook and District Arts Council Officially Opens at 1013 Baker St.

Cranbrook and District Arts Council officially opened their new gallery on Baker St. on Wednesday December 16th. It took several weeks for board members to update the space, plumb in water for a usable kitchen and workspace, and paint.  Their dedicated efforts have now been rewarded by being able to provide the many artisans in the area a venue suitable to compliment and sell their work.  The historic nature of the building, one of Cranbrook's original's provides a high tin ceiling and good light but is limited in size for larger workshops.

The Arts Council coordinates exhibits at both Key City Theatre and their own gallery at 1013, Baker St.  Their regular hours are Tuesday to Friday from 11:00am to 5:00pm Saturdays 10:00am to 2:00pm.  Hours have been extended however until Christmas and the Gallery will be open for regular hours after Christmas.
