The View is an architecturally striking facility that houses gallery spaces, rooms for meetings & classes, and larger areas that can accommodate receptions. The admission to the gallery exhibit area was $10--well worth the fee. The recent watercolor exhibit displayed a wide range of stunning paintings--portraits, abstracts, landscapes. Visitors were asked to cast a ballot for their favorite--an interactive element.... More

It is always a renewing experience to visit View. the facility itself is creative and beautiful inside and out. A great experience.

Only one year old, this arts center has played host to plays and music every month. The exhibitions, like the watercolor, pastel, theme and quilt, have grown in size and quality. There are always smaller exhibits to view and don't mist the Eco Gallery which is dedicated to the nature in the area. I live here and would recommend anyone... More
