Parkside Art Gallery

By Aimalicia Staub, MSW, @aimaliciastaub

Our Parkside Gallery was opened by Charter House in 2015 as a way to give back to the Rochester community.  This rotating art gallery featuring artistic works from local artists.  This dedicated space for local artists feeds our residents' cultural interests and love for art.

We are always looking to connect with programs and resources that benefit Rochester because of our belief in being a strong community partner. Creating an art gallery was another way for Charter House to give back to the Rochester arts community. Offering a rotating art exhibit was also of enormous interest to our residents because of their love of the cultural arts.

The response has been so strong from artists among the Rochester community we now have artists scheduled to exhibit in the Parkside Gallery for the next several years. At least one new artist will be featured each quarter. Artists now refer to Charter House as “the place where local artists want to display their work!”

Every quarter when a new exhibit is displayed, Charter House hosts a gallery opening event which the public is invited to attend. It is always a very well-attended event with refreshments, music, and a gallery talk by the artists.
