Don't miss the opportunity to visit this wonderful gallery and artist's studios space. This incredible nonprofit is housed in a historic wooden armory that is an architectural gem. Take a walk through the downstairs and upstairs galleries - the rotating exhibits are always fantastic. And if you have the time, definitely check out their workshop schedule. With everything from painting... More

With all these wonderful reviews and being great supporters and participants in the arts, we were hugely disappointed in our interaction with an artist setting up a show in this venue. After a pleasant walk from our hotel to specifically see this highly rated KW attraction, we found the front door locked with a paper sign referring pick ups to... More

Dear Visitor, I want to offer a very sincere apology for the treatment you received when trying to visit us. To my knowledge, have never had an incident like this before. The gallery was closed that day, due to the fact that a camera crew from PBS was filming an interview with an artist inside. That should have been more... More

We stumbled on this venue. It is an older building with exhibition space, teaching space and studios. When we arrived there was a drawing class going on, but we were still encouraged to look at what was displayed in the same space. We quietly went around the perimeter of the class looking at sculpture, mixed media, abstract and realistic pieces.... More

A gallery showing art and sculpture by local artists. Their studios are upstairs and you can nose round them if you like.

Went to Walk on White last week. What a terrific studio for local artists. We spoke with several artists who worked out of the studio. All were great at explaining their process. The main show downstairs was a show of roosters decorated by local talent that are up for auction. Can't wait to see what's next.

A stop at the TSKW is a great opportunity to see, and support, the work of local artists. My personal highlight was the chance to use the Art-O-Mat machine. An old time cigarette vending machine has been repurposed to spit out original art for just $5! There's only about 100 of these cool machines throughout the US and I was... More

This is a very protected little group of local average artists that prey on the wallets of visiting creative hearts. Not worth the trip.

If you are looking to visit a small gallery that won't take much time to see, this is the place. When I was there, they had a single, large exhibit by one photographer. Very interesting photos. I am not certain as to how often exhibits are changed.

Enchanting place that brings in wonderful music.....Susan Werner, Johnsmith, Noel Paul Stookey, Josh White Jr to name only a few. The gardens are pretty, the art varied and the vibe is special. This old armory has been transformed into an Art celebration of different media.
