Theatre in Woolwich

Dedicated to work by Woldemar Neufeld (1909-2002), the Neufeld Gallery includes a collection of his paintings and block prints. Admission to the gallery by donation.

Woolwich Art Display Program
Whether you're a beginner, an experienced artist, a student, or an artist collective, we hope that you will apply and share your creativity with others. Your work may be the inspiration that someone needs.
The Township of Woolwich provides individuals and/or groups with free display space at the Township Administration Building in Elmira to show and sell work. We suggest a 3-month exhibit time for each artist.
This program supports art and Artists by providing a free venue for work, and encourages art appreciation and education through connecting people with the wide variety of art created in the Region. To support the goal of showcasing the diversity of talent in the Township, there is no cost to the Artist to enter this program, or to display or sell their work.
Right now we can only display work on our walls but we're looking for display cabinets so that we can feature pottery, jewelry, sculpture, and other 3-D work.
