Our family lives close by and never gets tired of visiting the arts center and seeing the new exhibits. The center is centrally located and it is easy to make a day of the trip and shop and eat nearby on church street.

Just a small space with very little art. Two rooms and wacko uninteresting "Art" on the wall. There were maybe 5 pieces when I stopped in last year. If you are on Church Street stop in but don't go out of your way to visit or expect to spend more than or 5 - 10 minutes of your time.
