I was very impressed with the art work on display at the Community Council for the Arts. I did not get time to browse all the art work because I was there near closing but will get back another time.

We viewed a wonderful juried art show at the Center. The space is wonderful and the selection of art was eclectic from traditional landscapes and portraits to more abstract works in various media. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A great visit.

A friendly voice greeted me from the welcome desk and later I enjoyed chatting with her about the town. Art is well displayed with a variety of styles and media. Also has a well stocked gift shop. Visit and be inspired!

Our workplace had a charge nurse retreat here one afternoon/evening and had food catered! It was a lovely environment and a wonderful change from our ER lounge. I unfortunately didn't arrive early enough to enjoy the art, but plan to return soon for just that!
