RHINO Contemporary Crafts Gallery is having a grand opening party from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, March 9, at its new location on the second level of The Shops at Canal Place (333 Canal St.). The grand opening party includes a reception and special events by artists.
Moving to a larger gallery space coincides with the 25th anniversary of RHINO, short for Right Here In New Orleans, an artist co-op that has operated at Canal Place (previously on the third level) since 1998. The new RHINO features the work of 26 artists offering jewelry, sculpture, oil paintings, textiles, ceramics, metalwork and more. The new location also has a larger area for holding art workshops, which are open to the public.
