The Kala Gallery is a light filled 2,200 square foot exhibition space. The gallery presents approximately six exhibitions each year in a wide range of media by both emerging and recognized artists. Two of the exhibitions feature new works by Kala Fellowship artists and Artist-in-Residence working in print, digital media, video, installation, performance, photography and book arts. The remainder of Kala’s annual programming focuses on curated exhibitions assembled around a unifying theme, process or media.

Spring Gala and Auction


The spring gala and auction is Kala’s premiere event of the year and the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts. All proceeds from this event support educational and cultural programs that directly serve artists, children, and the community-at-large.
