Globe Runner to launch new Addison art gallery with Gallery 550

Digital agency will double as an art gallery

On November 20th, Globe Runner will celebrate becoming an Addison business resident by launching its corporate social responsibility project, Gallery 550. Among the confirmed attendees at the formal opening is the Mayor of Addison, Todd Meier.

Gallery 550 aims to provide up-and-coming DFW artists with exhibition space via Globe Runner’s walls. The first exhibition at this Addison art gallery will feature works by contemporary painter Winter Rusiloski. Her show will run until February 28th, 2015.

Coming up with Gallery 550 was an idea inspired by Globe Runner CEO Eric McGehearty’s roots as a sculptor and the company’s search to give back to the community.

“We want to be more than just another business; we wanted to contribute to the city’s culture, too,” said Eric.

With Gallery 550, Globe Runner will be the only digital agency in the area to double as an art gallery.

Rusiloski is represented by the Cohn Drennan Contemporary Gallery in Dallas and Artspace 111 in Fort Worth. She is an Associate Professor of Art at Tarrant County College Northwest Campus.
