Since opening in the Fall of 2002, BlackRock has been continuously presenting a vibrant series of solo and group exhibitions highlighting the work of hundreds of visual artists from across the region. Each year the community has the opportunity to connect and engage with both emerging and established artists presenting their work in the two beautiful gallery spaces. The Recollection exhibition, which is presented in both The Kay Gallery (on the main level) and the Terrace Gallery (on the upper level), was curated by Anne Burton, the Gallery Director at BlackRock. Admission to the exhibition and the galleries is free.
