The Empire Gallery has run its course and will not be opening this month for the first time in two years. I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the community of Juneau for supporting the Empire Gallery and its efforts to bring diverse art shows and arts opportunities to our community.
A special thanks to the Juneau Empire for providing the space and to all of the volunteers who donated time, money and materials to keep our community gallery and art center running. The Empire Gallery would not have succeeded without your help, support and encouragement.
The idea of a community gallery and art center will continue to germinate, but behind closed doors for now. In the meantime, keep supporting your local arts organizations and attending First Friday Art Walks!
