The owners of a concrete business headquartered in a Larkinville warehouse are getting into the art business.
Concrete Innovations CFO Charles Griffasi is currently seeking proposals for shows in a space he's dubbed "The Gallery at CI," in the company's showroom at 567 Exchange St.
"We've got a great location here in Larkinville and I've got all this wall space, where I thought it would be great to get local artists in," said Griffasi, whose father, also Charles, was instrumental in the success of Allentown Art Festival, the Buffalo Italian Festival and the Cultural Walk of Fame on Elmwood Avenue. "It also makes it available for them to show their things. That's the whole gist of it."
According to a Craigslist ad for the space, it will be open from 1 to 6 p.m. on Saturdays in addition to hosting private events.
Interested artists can contact Griffasi at 228-0265 with proposals for shows.
