Public EngagementEngage with The Gallery + Artists + Artworks
Throughout the year The Gallery hosts exhibition openings free to the community. These building-wide events connect artists and the public in a celebratory atmosphere. Non-critical and open to all members of our community, exhibition openings are informal and fun. Meet artists, ask questions and meander the building to see new works. There are usually six exhibition openings throughout the year. Refreshments and cash bar are available.
To see our upcoming exhibition opening nights, please visit our events calendar.
Over the past two decades the AAC Gallery Program has screened art documentaries. These documentaries look at the lives and practices of contemporary working artists. Art documentaries lift the curtain for non-artists and give a peek into the working lives of artists. As contemporary artists work with current topics, many times the films reflect on soci-political aspects of our own community. The films invite conversation, reflection and often inspire.
Attendees are asked to provide a donation to offset screening fees and as a fundraiser for The Gallery at Casa.

The Gallery occasionally hosts interesting and exciting exhibitions outside of Casa. These can be temporary and ephemeral exhibitions around the community or pop-up exhibitions on the plaza. The Gallery also partners with local organizations in mounting off-site visual arts programming.
