Essex Art Association Exit Gallery space renamed
in honor of Bob Gantner.

Bob Gantner has been a driving force behind the Essex Art Association.  He has worn many hats during his approximately 20 years on the EAA Council, including: council member, vice president, president, treasurer, and most importantly, friend and mentor to everyone who has followed in his footprints.

In honor of Bob's dedicated and caring service to the Essex Art Association, we are extremely happy to announce that the Exit Gallery has been renamed to the Gantner Gallery

Thank you Bob for all you've done.
