The Elk River Area Arts Alliance shop and gallery re-opened Wednesday in its new facility on the corner at 609 Main Street.

Grand Opening for the Alliance gallery and an enclosed business, Reading Frenzy, will be held Saturday, April 20, from 1 to 4 p.m.
The Alliance, to celebrated its move, is featuring a special Noric art exhibit borrowed from the Swedish Institute in Minneapolis for the first six weeks.

The facility consists of a modest-sized shop and a more spacious gallery, a corner of which is occupied by the bookstore Reading Frenzy. There are high ceilings and plenty of sunlight.

A nice bonus is the large adjacent patio for which the Alliance has many plans including permanent sculptures and Thursday night food offerings for Riverfront Concert attendees.

The gallery, open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.. was previous located at two other downtown addresses.
