ArtPort Gallery provides local art to air travellers

Art at the airport turns out to be a great idea

Posted By on Sun, Feb 12, 2012 at 4:00 AM

ArtPort Gallery is a gallery located at the Robert L. Stanfield International Airport. In operation for seven years, it's owned by Donna Mancini, who runs the place like a co-op; there's always one of the 11 artists represented working at the gallery. Mancini is one of them, offering her multimedia work alongside original watercolour, acrylic and oil paintings and reproductions. "There's a lot of return business" as travellers come and go, explains Mancini, who is happy with how well the business has done through the years. "I'm not in it to make money, but it gives the artists a place to show and sell their work." Open 364 days a year, from 8:30 am to 7pm (8pm in the summer), you can find the ArtPort across from the Air Canada check-in counter.
