I have a home full of art! Love art and when we travel, I always bring something back until this trip. I went there...hoping for some local artist type co-op prices...but not here. The most expensive was a $16,000 bust...average pricing was $700 and up...jewelery, clothing and some small art items for less. Just disappointing price range and offerings from... More

A great assortment of artists and craftsmen. Much larger than it appears from the outside. Beautifully displayed and arranged in groupings, whether glass, pottery, sculpture, or paintings.

Forget high-priced museums. This little nook was such a dream. Nice way to escape from the midday sun and see some amazing work.

This gallery is a must-see. I have been visiting it for years, and it always has a wide variety of high-quality art pieces, paintings, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, fabric, and more in a range of prices.

The River Gallery offers a varied selection of art created by local artists. Paintings, oil. acrylic, watercolor, etc. are available for purchase as well as art pottery, sculptures and jewelry. If you go to Rembrandt's next door for coffee be sure and finish before you enter the gallery, they can be a bit snippy about it.

This zoo gets better every time we visit. What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality. It is run by people that care and it shows! The animals are well cared for and the enclosures nicely done. Make sure you bring your camera as there are lots of great photo opportunities.

This is a wonderful place to see artistic things from glass blown ornaments, wind chimes, jewelry as well as more traditional artwork. And the staff is warm, friendly and welcoming!
