The Georgina Arts Centre and Gallery opens its doors to the New Year (and to you…) on Tuesday, January 9 @10am.
If you want to be the first person to enter the Gallery in 2018, you will have to line up overnight… Please bring a warm sleeping bag!
Development of a new website has been delayed. We shall keep updating this one until a new one can be deployed.
The framework of the current website is years out of date. There are problems with the calendar (it crashes when it is updated), and images seem to get lost randomly… Hopefully in the next few months a new website will be up and running!
