This August, Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery will be featuring the collective works of several artists whose work exemplifies the locality of its makers and distinguishes the alumni of the McColl Center for Art + Innovation. This hub for creativity resides in a gothic-revived church that was built in 1926. After the church, a few years of vacancy and a fire that left the interior barren, it was bought in 1995 to become what it is today!
With the support of Hugh McColl and the Arts & Science Council, and with the vision of the FMK Architects and rebuilt by Rodgers Builders, the McColl Center for Art + Innovation opened it’s doors in 1999. Since then it “has become a nationally acclaimed contemporary art center dedicated to connecting art and artists with the community.”
The McColl alumni artists that will be in our upcoming exhibition are: Linda Luise Brown, Ivan Toth Depena, Diane Hughes, Carmella Jarvi and Terry Shipley. The featured local artists to accompany the McColl alumni are Kristen van Diggellen Sloan and Tony Griffin.
