About the Gallery

The CTAC Art Gallery is located in the beautiful two-story gallery space in Downtown Plaza (810 W Walnut Ave), formerly known as The Ritz Theatre.

The gallery features local artists of various mediums and offers each artist the opportunity to display and sell their works. Artists are featured in an exhibit which is kicked off by an opening night reception open to the public. The CTAC Art Gallery brings new opportunities to the community, one exhibit at a time.
