The Cooperative Gallery 213 has chosen to be socially responsible by closing its doors while officials are trying to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus. We want to play our part in this community effort and join other arts and educational organizations who are suspending public events. We plan to monitor the situation closely and re-evaluate by mid April.

Karen Kuff-Demicco’s show “Introspection” will remain up until April 25. Ken Weir’s exhibit will be re-scheduled to July. We will decide about other shows as the situation develops.

Art and Culture are an important part of our lives and we will offer art videos and offer arts news and home exercises using our Facebook page, website, and e-newsletter. If you are not connected, you can subscribe to the free newsletter on website at or Facebook: Cooperative Gallery 213.
