It’s that polar vortex time of year, so you know we must be hanging up some new art at the Chapterhouse! Joe Boruchow and Sarah Jacoby will be showing their new work and answering your questions this Friday, so please give us a whoop whoop and tell your friends on them face books! See you there and don’t forget to towel up!
If there were words to describe this coming art opening at the Chapterhouse, I’d use them to articulate how cool everything is. But since there aren’t, I can only advise you to stop by this Friday October 11th to check out some new and amazing works by Miguel Co, Susan Crawford & Eleanor Grosch. Your mind will be blown and you can warm up with a chocolate salted carmel latte with almond milk to get your bearings straight after that happens. Hope to see y’all there, y’all!
This Saturday, September 7th at 8pm • reading poetry–

With each new art show comes new possibilities. Time goes on and things change, but new art at the Chapterhouse will not. But once the show was two months long, and then three; to satiate the eager viewer, lingering on in that quiet moment when they are taken somewhere else: allowing them to gaze upon the newly garnished plaster and look inside to the artist within and ask: What the f*ck is that? To which they might reply: I have no idea, but it’s pretty cool.

Spring-time has arrived a little late but that only makes the timing of our next art opening that much more awesome. We’ve got lots of special things happening so come out for some snacks and fine people this Friday April 12th at 7pm.
After careful consideration, we’ve decided to invite everyone over for a drink and some snacks so we can check out the new wall digs at Chapterhouse Cafe & Gallery. For the next three months, the works of Daniel Hughes and Jon Laing will be hanging out and getting looked at. See you there, this Friday!
