Education at ACGOW

Our United in Arts Gallery is part of ACGOW’s Community Outreach program. This community gallery is a dedicated space where ACGOW hosts artwork from regional schools and community art groups who do not have other venues to display their work.
For each of seven months of the year, at no charge, a different group or school has sole use of the United in Arts Community Gallery room. This opportunity provides an avenue for these organizations to promote the work of their members and students.
Some groups who have showcased in the Community Gallery include area public and private elementary and high schools, amateur art groups, and local non-profit organizations such as the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center and The Frank Ocean Center for persons with developmental disabilities.
Any interested group can contact us at 401-596-2221
