EXHIBITION SPACE

The Foundry Art Centre is a dynamic, interactive center dedicated to the creation & presentation of contemporary visual and performing arts. Our mission is to connect people with the arts through exhibitions, studio artists, performances, & education. Featuring a state-of-the-art gallery, the Foundry hosts national and international juried fine art exhibitions and curated traveling exhibitions. 

 

THE EXHIBITION

One distinguishing quality that sets human beings apart is our curiosity beyond ourselves. “Concerning the Spiritual” asks the artist to interpret this mystery in their artwork. Welcoming all-media and all viewpoints, the exhibition explores the wonders we all seek beyond the corporeal & tangible.
