each month, join the FAC and celebrate the arts. The FAC will be open for
extended hours through 8pm for visitors to spend time in the galleries, meet
resident studio artists, engage with the community, and enjoy a wide array of
art programming, entertainment, and special events.

We Were

printmaking art projects will be available.

Studio Artist Jim Carlson’s exhibition Fantastic

“Everyone at the Foundry Art Centre is excited to host First
Friday Open Houses,” explained Sean FitzGibbons, the Foundry Art Centre’s
Executive Director. “Hosting these open houses every First Friday is a new way
forward for the FAC, and it aligns perfectly with our mission of being a
