Gallery 25 and Creative Arts Studio is sponsored by the New Milford Commission on the Arts. Our mission is to provide a friendly space to display and sell remarkable works of fine art and unique handmade artisan creations; to stimulate interaction and cultural exchange throughout western Connecticut and with other arts organizations and schools; to educate through programs and presentations; and to foster interest and appreciation for the creative arts within the greater New Milford community. All this happens in an atmosphere that fosters support and cooperation among our members.
Our gallery is a cooperative membership featuring local, regional, and emerging artists and artisans. All members help with gallery duties including taking turns hosting, providing refreshments, selling, serving on committees, organizing programs and events.
We are grateful to the Town of New Milford and its citizens for the opportunity to have a community sponsored art gallery. Gallery 25 and Creative Arts Studio and the New Milford Commission on the Arts are inclusive and everyone is free to apply and if you meet the artistic criteria will be invited to join the co-op.
Sponsored by the New Milford Commission on the Arts, Gallery 25 was founded in 2014 as a cooperative style fine art gallery representing local and regional award-winning artists and artisans. Each artist is carefully screened through a jury process in order to gain membership, guaranteeing the highest quality work for the gallery.
Located in the historic train station in downtown New Milford CT, member-artists each take an active role in the operation of the gallery, including organizing programs and free events such as art lectures and art demonstrations, providing refreshments for receptions, serving on committees, and hosting during gallery hours. Guest artists and/or guest organizations are invited to present programs, teach workshops, and to exhibit.
Visitors are always greeted by a gallery artist-member and may gain knowledge about the works on display directly from an artist.
Gallery 25 and Creative Arts Center is grateful to the Town of New Milford and the New Milford Commission on the Arts for the opportunity to have a community art gallery which is renewing interest and activity in the local art scene.
Gallery 25 and Creative Arts Studio and the New Milford Commission on the Arts are inclusive. Any local artist actively making art may apply to become a regular exhibiting member. We suggest an interested artist first visit Gallery 25 to learn what the gallery looks like. Applicants must submit digital files that represent the type and quality of work they wish to show. If you meet the gallery’s criteria, you will be invited to an in-person portfolio interview.
