More will be announced closer to the exhibition.

The Gallery’s relocation and remodeling was part of a larger construction project affecting most of Reg Lenna Center for The Arts. Demolition for the multi-million dollar project began in December, 2017 with renovation and construction following in early 2018. Funding for the project comes from Western New York Regional Economic Development Council DRI, Ralph C. Sheldon Foundation, Gebbie Foundation and Lenna Foundation.

Shows at 3rd on 3rd Gallery are made possible by grant support from New York State Council On The Arts. 3rd On 3rd Gallery is located at 108 E. 3rd St. in the Reg Lenna Center for The Arts in Jamestown.
