The art gallery will give artists an opportunity to exhibit their artwork to the public hoping to
generate awareness, sales and demand for regional art.

Artists will be spotlighted on a rotating basis in one or two district display areas while monthly social events will allow the public to meet and mingle with the artists.

The art gallery is located in Fulton at 47 S. First St., across from the city gazebo.

Although a soft opening of Arts in the Heart Gallery was held recently, there will be a grand opening on June 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with harpist Marcella Slater performing from 2 to 4 p.m.

The nonprofit CNY Arts Center is run entirely by volunteers.

The Fulton Sunrise Rotary meets every Friday at 7 a.m. at Fulton’s Riverside Inn.
