April 29 – July 17, 2015


Celebrating the past 10 years and launching the next decade, the Fresh A.I.R. Gallery will host an anniversary exhibition from April 29–July 17, 2015.

Since opening our gallery doors in September 2004, Fresh A.I.R. Gallery has shown 60 exhibitions, displaying the artwork of over 200 artists and sold more than 250 pieces of artwork totaling over $60,000. Fresh A.I.R.

Many exhibits demonstrate the courage and struggles of the artists as they combat stigma and address social issues.

The work will showcase previous exhibiting Fresh A.I.R. Gallery artists work through a call for artwork. Join us for the opening reception Wednesday, April 29, 2015 from 4:00–7:00 pm.
