Community Involvement

Strategically positioned in a downtown community  and located at the heart of Canton Arts District, The Joseph Saxton Gallery is steeped in historical significance and hopes to be a shining example of adaptive reuse in post-industrial America.

Employing area contractors, hiring locally, and buying from our neighbors not only helps ensure the highest quality resources, but also helps ensure money spent, stays in the community.

Arts in Stark has played a pivotal role in bringing together area artists, art professionals and galleries into the unified league known as The Canton Arts District. The Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography is proud to be a part of this Arts District and of the partnerships it has forged with neighboring galleries.

Every month the galleries and studios of downtown Canton join restauranteurs and entreprenuers for First Friday Celebrations, a fantastic display of local art representing all walks of life, attracting thousands of visitors from the region.
