Plano Art Association closing its gallery facility

Update regarding
Plano Art Association
Gallery Facility

As many of you know, PAA has discontinued occupancy
of it’s gallery space at EastSide Village in the
Arts District in Downtown Plano.

Circumstances related to a major increase in the lease
renewal rate made it impossible for the association to afford
continued  occupancy. Every attempt was made to negotiate a responsible path forward to retain the space, but to no avail.

Going forward, the association will certainly continue
to inspire and encourage its member artists and achieve
the mission of the organization:

“The Plano Art Association is dedicated to
encouraging the visual arts development of the
membership, and inspiring awareness of the visual arts
by sharing the joy, passion and beauty
within and beyond our Plano community.”

New venues are being explored for regular member meetings
and upcoming scheduled exhibits. We will keep everyone
informed as the options and opportunities are identified.

Although the gallery has been a milestone event in the
history of the Plano Art Association, the organization
has thrived for more than four decades and it will
certainly do so for decades to come. The closing of the
gallery comes very close to the end of term of our
current excellent leadership. We all look
forward to choosing a new executive team
that can build on the strong
accomplishments of the last few years.
Cheers,
Soheyla Rashidyan
President, Plano Art Association
