About Pro Arts


Pro Arts' work is rooted in service to community, artistic excellence and our belief that creativity generates vitality. We provide creative platforms for artists, youth and public audiences. Our programs focus on the visual arts - exhibitions, commissionings and open studios; artist services; and arts education in schools.
