Visit us to enjoy art in an exciting variety of ways.
Here you can admire, discuss, participate, and perhaps bring an art treasure home. Every month, you’ll find a new exhibition that explores a special theme, such as ilfe by the water, painting outdoors, combining media or different cultures. See our website for the current exhibition. If you are here on a First Friday, come to the opening reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and mingle with the artists on hand.
Every day, you’ll find the work of over 40 regional artists with studios or exhibiting in The Artists Gallery section of the center. Artists creating in their studios are happy to discuss their work, its inspiration and vision.
We offer a full array of art classes for beginners, experienced artists and anyone in between. You can also participate in discussions, art-making or social activities related to the current exhibition theme. Classes can be found on the website.
