Black Lives Matter.

The Front is a cooperative gallery, founded on cooperative ideals. In that spirit, we stand together with protesters across the nation against violence, racism, and police brutality. Our goal is to showcase individual artistic voices in an inclusive, supportive, and welcoming environment. We believe art can be a medium for social change, and we see that happening around us, from murals around the world honoring George Floyd to the removal of confederate statues in Virgina. Art is meant to provoke and invite dialogue; even though our doors are currently closed, we’re interested in listening. If you are an artist of color and would like to be involved at the Front, let us know. If you would like to support artists of color, here are some great places to learn and donate. We hope we’ll be seeing you soon – in the meantime, stay safe. Don’t stay silent.

We’ll miss you, Ray.

We are all deeply saddened by the passing of one of our members, Ray Brown, on March 13, 2020. Ray was a wonderful person and a valued member of our community, and will be sorely missed. We have extended his solo show, Ray Brown: Tumbling Toward the End, through April, though we are closed until April 6 to do our part against Coronavirus. We will be screening the film Ray Brown: Portrait of an Artist once the gallery opens to the public; stay tuned or sign up for our mailing list for details. To read more about Ray, please see his obituary on Seven Days, who have also published a review of his show, as have the Times-Argus.
