Gateway to the Arts

Excited to be embarking on this new endeavor. Please contact us for any information.

Hello All!This is a very happy post. We have been working diligently behind the scenes to bring Gateway To the Arts from dream to reality. We hit a few bumps along the way, mainly the one everyone is sick of hearing about, COVID, but a few others as well. However Dani-Lynn Redgrift-Berthelot, Shanan Thibault King and myself are exceptionally excited to let the cat out of the bag this afternoon. After looking at an endless stream of retail spaces we have confirmed (20 minutes ago) that the new location of Gateway To the Arts will be 151 MAin Street West in North Bay. This space is 1300 sq. Feet of beautiful upstairs space and 1300 sq. Feet of basement space that will be turned into studio space for rent and host several permanent artists. We could not be more pleased to have worked out a great agreement with the owner. This has been a long time coming but Gateway To the Arts finally has a CONFIRMED bricks and mortar home within the Gateway City. Our target open date will be October 1, 2020 just in time for the upcoming holiday season and we will be accepting artist applications as of TODAY. Gateway To the Arts will become THE place to go for gallery quality artwork from across the north with many membership levels. Our focus will be on promoting artists/artisans, mixed media artists and on promoting the sale of original art pieces. We will offer a directory of artists from across the north who will be available to facilitate workshops, seminars and classes of a professional quality while supporting the passion of a mature artists and children in positive learning environments. We will also be facilitating bookings for organizations, realtors looking to stage homes and film set design as well as offering quality events within the gallery and northern Ontario communities and organizations. Gateway To the Arts will follow a true co-operative model and our mandate will be to work together to help each other, teach each other and promote each other throughout the creative process.
