Watson-Ewell-Currin Art Gallery

pdf-iconGuidelines for Art Exhibits and Displays (.pdf)


The Watson-Ewell-Currin Community Art Gallery is open to the public during regular library hours. This
gallery represents, and is named for, four generations of artists, all from the same family. It is named for a family of artists that started in Chicago, and is continued in Hudson, Ohio. It has been endowed in hopes that it will provide a display area for Hudson artists of all ages, from the very young to those veterans in the field.

The Hudson Library & Historical Society welcomes and encourages local artists and students to display their work at the library. Please view the gallery brochure for more information about the history of the names above the door.

For more information, contact Nicole Arigo at 330-653-6658 x1046 or nicole.arigo@hudson.lib.oh.us
