Arts in Bartlett, the nonprofit arts council at 117 W. Railroad Ave. since 2009, will be closed July 6-13 to relocate across the street to 118 W. Bartlett Ave., Suite 2.

The new facility in downtown Bartlett is larger, and will have a larger gallery, an office and three artist studios. It will reopen 1-5 p.m. July 14 with a special photography exhibit, "Enchanted Taiwan," and free public reception.

On loan from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO), this exhibit features landscapes from this island that lies on the eastern edge of the Asian continent -- a land of enchanting scenic beauty, solemn majestic mountains and deep valleys.

Also included in the exhibit are art objects on loan from members of the Bartlett International Chorus who toured Taiwan in March 2010 on a cultural exchange to help establish Miaoli City as Bartlett's first Sister City.

Earlier in the day at the Village of Bartlett, Arts in Bartlett and TECO will celebrate the centennial of the Republic of China by hosting a free public reception at 11 a.m. for "Retracing Our Steps: A Photo Journey through 100 Years of the ROC," in Bartlett Village Hall, 2nd Floor Art Gallery, 228 S. Main St.

Both exhibits will be on display during regular hours until July 26.

Arts in Bartlett's hours will be 1-5 p.m. Tuesdays and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. For more information email or visit
