The community gallery space in downtown Ti will host an opening celebration on Thursday, July 19, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
A vacant building space, previously Curves workout center, is being converted into a community gallery space in downtown Ticonderoga. The space will host artists from within the community and others who have connections to the area.
Caroline Verner, a cultural arts intern working with the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance this summer, embraced the opportunity to work on projects that relate to downtown revitalization. With much hard work, and help from many community members, the Alliance is inviting the community to the Gallery’s opening on Thursday, July 19, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Refreshments will be served and other exciting surprises will happen. A professional local artist offering his talent as a portrait photographer for families and friends for a small donation will be one such surprise.

• Richard Timberlake (photography)
• Students from NCCC (Susan Hoffer) (Intro Drawing Students)
• Bette Ladeau (Wood Painting)
