A Little Reception on May 6th!!

Gallery 25 is excited about reopening in our new location at the New Milford Train Station (New Milford Art Depot) at 11 Railroad Street. We think the gallery is looking quite nice and we invite the public to view our new gallery space during a small reception on Saturday, May 6 from 5-8 pm. Please stop by and say hello. A grander reception is planned for this summer.
And, Gallery 25 and other New Milford businesses will stay open late Thursday, May 11, from 5-8 pm, for the convenience of Mother's Day shoppers.
Gallery 25 is a cooperative gallery of local fine artists and artisans. The Gallery will be open Thursday thru Sunday from 12 - 5:00 pm in April and May through Sunday, May 21st. The gallery is supported by New Milford Commission on the Arts.

We have a new home!!

It's been months and the artists of Gallery 25 have hung in there (pun intended!) hoping for continued support and encouragement from the Town of New Milford and the New Milford Commission on the Arts. We got it!! So many people to thank, especially Mayor David Gronbach, Town Planner Kathy Castegnetta, Economic Dev. Dir. Kevin Bielmeier, the New Milford Commission on the Arts, and New Milford's Zoning Commission. Thank you all!!

As of Wednesday, April 20, we launched a Spring Show in the New Milford railroad station at 11 Railroad Street in New Milford. Still keeping the name Gallery 25, we plan to have new signage that reflect the designation of the railroad station as a community art center. Perhaps calling it the New Milford Arts Depot?

The railroad station is a beautifully restored historic building and we are thrilled to call it home! Still lots to do as we learn about the space and determine shows, hours, programs, etc. But, we are open!!

And,  our mission is to encourage and provide gallery opportunities to a variety of artists of all levels, offer programs, and include volunteers who may not be quite ready to show, but need encouragement and advice. All shows and programs will be vetted but the arts commission.

Open most Thursdays to Sundays from noon to 5 pm, or by appointment or by chance. For more information, e-mail newmilartscomm@gmail.com or call 860-355-6009 and leave a message (we are getting new phones, so if no one answers, please call back!
