The Hawthorne Gallery is a must-see for art-lovers and novices alike. The artistic and delightful Shelby Hawthorne provided our tour. The exquisite architecture of the gallery alone is stunning, not to mention all of the wonderful artifacts contained within AND outdoors. If only there were a Hawthorne Gallery where I reside....

We love this gallery and the folks who run it! The art is world class and always changes each year we visit. The owners are wonderful and the gallery itself is a work of art. This is a must visit if you are in the area and a reason itself to visit!

Every aspect of this gallery is a joy. From the waterfall and path outside to the soaring windows of the building to the variety and skill level of the artworks inside, and the lovely young artist who showed us around, this one is a winner.
