The gallery is open Friday and Saturday during exhibitions from 12-5pm and from 5-9 pm during the Akron Artwalk, the first Saturday of each month. We feature eight separate shows a year that we select from proposals submitted at the beginning of the previous year.

Give orphaned, abandoned art a good home!

SALE during Members Show Reception
Friday, November 22, 5-8pm

AoRC has half a dozen or so pieces of unclaimed art. Multiple attempts have been made to return this art to its makers but, alas, a few pieces just haven’t been claimed and they are becoming shop worn as they get moved around in the office.
Before these pieces get damaged, please come to the first and hopefully last ever AoRC Abandoned Art Sale and give a lonely unclaimed work of art a new and appreciative home.

Prices are low, low, low.

All proceeds go to AoRC’s general operating budget.
