KATHY THIESSEN ART GALLERY
In recognition of her initiative and dedication to the arts, the Board of Directors named the Station gallery after its 25-year administrator, Kathy Thiessen. A core group of founding members began working with Thiessen in 1986 to make the dream of a community centre for the arts a reality. Thiessen retired in 2010 and continues to enjoy supporting the Station Arts Centre through volunteering, attending concerts and special events.
The Kathy Thiessen Art Gallery is programmed through an ongoing call for submissions as well as by curated exhibitions. The Station Arts Centre hosts monthly exhibits year round and accepts applications from both professional and emerging artists. We are currently accepting applications for shows into 2021. Please fill out the submission form below if you are interesting in having your pieces on display in the Kathy Thiessen Art Gallery.
