With changing juried art shows in two parts of the building, there's always something to see. Classes for adults and children are offered. Beautiful items for sale. A great local institution.

Old converted church provides a good gallery for art exhibits and shows. Was surprised that they required an entry fee, as most art centers do not. A significant juried show was displayed in a very good presentation in a very nice facility.
