Paul Williams Gallery
September 5, 2015 @ 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM
The Paul Williams gallery began life as the primary post office for the City of Ontario in 1926. It functioned as the main post office from 1926 to 1941 when a newer building took its place on Holt Blvd. The interior of the PaulWilliams gallery is unchanged for the most part, there are rough cut beams of the ceiling and the ceiling is decorated with gold leafed and painted flags of the different German cities. Two murals on the East and West end done by renowned painter, Carl F. Ruhneaudepict Mt. Baldy and San Gorgonio peaks. The floors are terrazzo and arched windows adorn the North elevation.
As a gallery we have showcased photographers, painters and sculptors, each show having a different character and a different theme. The upcoming show in November will be featuring the works done in collaboration with local printer Todd Smith. Mr. Smith works with dozens of artists creating printed multiple images of their work. 2016 will feature 5-6 shows, each by a different or different group of artists, the Paul Williams Gallery has been gaining momentum attracting attention from as far away as India, Europe and Australia.
