Onsite Gallery is pleased to participate in the annual international event, Slow Art Day.

What is Slow Art Day?
Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. One day each year, people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art for 10 minutes each and then meet together to talk about their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing. For more info, visit Slow Art Day's website here.

What is happening at Onsite Gallery for Slow Art Day
Every hour on the hour (12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.), one artwork in our current exhibition, The Sunshine Eaters, will be selected for focused viewing. Visitors will take 10 minutes to view the chosen artwork, which will be immediately followed by a group discussion led by one of our gallery staff members.

All are welcome to join the conversation!
