Art Gallery

The Widlund Gallery

GalleryHaving entered into the windowed main lobby, the visual art gallery, on the left, beckons.  There are 4 large walls covered with a wall carpet treatment to facilitate the ease of changing two dimensional art displays. The neutral tone wall carpet is backed with plywood to allow for heavy art, hung on strong picture hooks or nails. When the nails are removed, the holes are no longer visible. Each wall carpet segment is 5 feet high and range in length from 3 feet to 21 feet. Art display lights as well as general illumination fixtures enhance this space. Large windows give the space a feel of being outside and yet do not allow direct sunlight on the two dimensional display areas. If possible, we suggest visiting the facility before you plan your exhibit.

Three dimensional-art has display flexibility using portable round display “tables” of varying heights, display shelves and floor space. The mezzanine, just off the gallery, offers an additional 33 feet of wall carpeted space for two-dimensional art, also with art display lighting. This is very good display space for close up viewing.

The Tannery Pond Community Lobby(small)Center Association’s Gallery Committee manages the schedule of exhibitions in the gallery. The exhibits are changed monthly. If you’re interested in exhibiting your own work, sending in a Request to Exhibit form will initiate the process. There is not a retail function associated with the facility. Artists may offer their work for sale and forms are available for this purpose. Artwork on exhibit may not be removed until the end of the exhibit. There currently is no fee to display but artists are required to return 25% of the sales to the Gallery Committee of TPCCA to defray their expenses.

 

Auditorium

AUDITORIUM FEATURES

The unique design of our auditorium let’s you choose between a formal theatre setting when the seats are expanded, or a dance hall atmosphere when the seats are removed. We’ve hosted a number of events where both options are used in the same evening! This is especially useful for musical evenings where you want to start out with a concert, and switch to dancing after intermission. The mechanism for collapsing the telescopic seating is magically automated, so the entire operation can be completed in five minutes.

The maple hardwood “sprung” floor has a gymnasium type finish. In floor heating and air conditioning offer comfortable conditions at any time of the year. Windows let in daylight or can be curtained for a dark “movie house” setting. Curtains, wood walls and sound reflectors create an incredibly good acoustical space. Stage curtains, stage entrence, theater lighting and control booth offer wonderful performance opportunities.
