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!
