The Parma Chai Out of the Blue Community Arts Gallery is a beloved art gallery, music venue, and literary salon known for our lively local art exhibits and music shows. With 30 years of experience in the arts and hosting events both public and private, formal and casual, we have always worked to ensure art flourishes in our neighborhood. At the gallery, there is space available for artists and makers to work in, as well as room for art shows, music, rehearsals, and other creative activities such as classes, dance, and yoga.
If you are interested in using one of our multiple spaces, please contact Owner/Business Manager Parama Chattopadhyay at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited so if you are interested please don’t hesitate to be in touch. At this time we are not accepting new visual artists for our walls as we are at maximum capacity, but we continue to expand our artistic community by hosting personal exhibits, and inviting guest musicians, poets and instructors. We celebrate diversity and inclusiveness.
The mission of the Gallery is to organize, support, and present to the public at large the creative efforts of local artists, musicians, and other creatives from our community, locally and internationally. Artists of all abilities are given an opportunity to share in the expression of the arts and all of its varieties and forms, whether through painting, music, dance, poetry, story, acting or singing. The Gallery aims to enable these same artists to intermingle with those of different disciplines, to grow and learn from each other. The Gallery’s purpose is to bring people together in an inspiring, supportive, and empowering environment.
