HorseSpirit Arts Gallery Grand Re-Opening November 10th 2018

HorseSpirit Arts Gallery was located in Old Ellicott City for the devastating floods of July 2016 and May 2018.

Robin and Max have found a new home at Historic Savage Mill, and the Grand Re-opening is TOMORROW!

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:00 am.

Historic Savage Mill is located at 8600 Foundry Street, Savage, MD 20763.

There is limited parking near the Cotton Shed Building. I usually park in the West Parking Lot and walk through the New Weave Building (there are stairs involved in this route). You can exit the New Weave Building lower level to the lower parking lot where the New Weave Building meets the Old Weave Building.
