This is a large location in downtown Aiken, SC. If you enjoy browsing galleries, this is not one to be missed when you are in the area. They offer classes upstairs in studio rooms, lectures on art, hold a classy reception here.

Found this place on Lauren Street and when you wander past the front desk you are in another world of art and visual entertainment and sublime contentment. Please go and experience the gallery, buy a painting or a gift in their gift area.
