Love galleries like this. They have a nice seasonally-rotating section, and a lot of interesting work. Was a good intermission in the middle of a fairly-filled day. Places like this are awesome!

I have attended 2 fantastic radio shows! Even though the actors were local people, they gave a very professional and fun performance both times. I hope many tourists will be able to enjoy future offerings at the Galena Center for the Arts.
