We viewed a wonderful juried art show at the Center. The space is wonderful and the selection of art was eclectic from traditional landscapes and portraits to more abstract works in various media. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A great visit.

Our workplace had a charge nurse retreat here one afternoon/evening and had food catered! It was a lovely environment and a wonderful change from our ER lounge. I unfortunately didn't arrive early enough to enjoy the art, but plan to return soon for just that!
