WHAT DOES ACWR MEAN TO YOU?
Tremendous resource for our community in support of artists who seek a venue to support and promote their work. The gallery space acts as a hub for our city and Walkerville, with a continuous stream of events and exhibits. Without ACWR it is likely many artists would not have been able to find their footing and prosper.
