REO Gallery opens to the public

It’s not everyday that you are invited to an art opening where the art isn’t the only primary focus of the night. This evening, your presence is requested at the opening of one of the city’s newest galleries, featuring the work of LeRoi Johnson (learn more here). This event is going to be an occasion to remember, as curator and gallery owner John Fatta opens the doors of REO Gallery located at 1120 Main Street – in a building that has not been on the public’s radar for quite some time.

Whether you are an artist or an art enthusiast, or you simply like to visit historic buildings new to the public realm, REO Gallery is a place where you can immerse yourself into a new architectural frontier filled with artistic creations by one of this city’s acclaimed resident painters.
