Exhibitions give the community an opportunity to interact intimately with the art. ​At the opening reception, local and regional artists are on hand to talk about their vision and inspiration. Related programming throughout the month allows the community to participate in discussions, art-making and social activities relating to the exhibition theme. ​ Join us on the First Friday of each month, 6:30-8:30 pm. There is free parking and no admission fee. ​ ​Click here for the 2019 Exhibition Schedule.
