Thanks for the visits. You are quite right. Each month is another show. Please stop by in March for our Members Show, one of our best shows of the year.

Wow, what a cool art gallery! All local artists, with some very talented people. The feel of the gallery is welcoming, and member artists who sit are eager to show you their work in the show. Neat to see the winners of the monthly shows.
