EDUCATION THROUGH ART
The goal of the Winkler Gallery and Art Education Center is to stimulate the arts in the City of DuBois, Pennsylvania and the surrounding area. The purpose of the gallery is to foster the growth of the visual arts by acting as a presenter of quality artists from around the region and act as a catalyst for arts education. The cooperative encourages community involvement in the arts and serves as a local resource for arts information. The objective of the Winkler Gallery artists cooperative is to provide a stimulating and nurturing environment for the creation and exhibition of visual arts of all media, to support all forms of art education, and to enhance and nurture the creative talent of the community by:
- Providing artists with an opportunity to demonstrate and exhibit their artwork and provide an opportunity to market their artwork through the gallery.
- Increasing awareness and appreciation of the visual arts.
- Building an art community through mutual support, cooperation and education.
