Exhibitions in the Gallery
The Minarovich Gallery is our main gallery space 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 talented contemporary regional 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.
