Impeccable vision, a unique way of seeing this world, and an incredible passion for creating meaningful works: Kerri Quirk and Horizons have created a world class gallery right here on Main Street for all of Willimantic and the surrounding communities to enjoy. Opened in May of 2010, the Kerri gallery hosts shows of Kerri’s unique art, along with other local and national artists.
Started out of the space that once was Oobah’s Deli, Keri Quirk paints here Monday through Friday along with Tom Menard, an accomplished artist in his own right. Kerri has worked as a professional artist for the past 25 years and has become very accomplished. Her works are characterized by an incredible sense of color and design, working mostly in acrylic on large canvases. What’s most inspiring about Kerri is that she’s deaf and autistic; her art is truly the voice she uses to speak to the world. Kerri has also gained critical acclaim and a wide following, regularly showing her work in New York and Chicago.
The gallery, operated by Horizons, is truly a magnificent space for Kerri to work in and for any artist’s work to be shown. Beautifully restored, the floors tell the story of many of the businesses that have occupied this storefront throughout the decades. A true masterpiece in it’s own right, this gallery is a wonderful addition to Mainstreet’s growing portfolio of businesses. The Kerri gallery is located at 861 Main Street and is open Wednesday through Friday, 10am – 6pm and Saturday, 11am – 3 pm.
