Exhibitions in the Gallery
The Minarovich Gallery is one of two gallery spaces at the Elora Centre for the Arts. Located in the original stone schoolhouse, this gallery was once part of the former principal’s office and school reception area. The gallery offers exhibitions throughout the year, featuring contemporary regional artists (or featuring talented, contemporary artists.) It is also available for private function rentals for those looking for a unique and intimate location for live music, weddings and special events in the heart of downtown Elora, Ontario.
The Harris Gallery is located in the former Grade 1 classroom of the original stone schoolhouse. It boasts the original schoolhouse lighting, large windows and wood floors of the original structure (there is even a remnant of a hopscotch outline on the floor!) The Harris gallery features rotating curated and invitational exhibitions by visual artists.
