Although this museum is quaint in it's physical size it has a large reach in the art world. They have an annual art's competition that is judged by some of the most knowledgeable (curator's of museums, famous artists, etc). A really good place not only to view artistic works but also to take a class or get connected if you are moving into the area with your art. I was impressed coming from a big city, such as Dallas to see what they had done in this smaller "hometown" community. Kudos! Free to visit (donations accepted) - Parking lot provided.

This was a very eclectic exhibit of creches including drawings, crochet, embroidery, sculpture, found objects, metal work and miniatures, There was folk art, whimsy, regional and international flavor as well as religious reverence. One of my favorites was a Texas piece complete with Stetson hats on the humans and an armadillo and horned toad in the barnyard. Not to be missed!

I have taken several jewelry-making classes at the Art Center. It has equipment available for use by members. Several shows are presented in the gallery throughout the year. The Holiday Gallery of Shops takes place in November, it is a great opportunity to shop for unique Christmas gifts made by the talented members of the center.

I have had the good fortune to take several classes at the Art Center. Their staff is dedicated and work there because it is a cause in which they believe. The prices are reasonable and I have always felt like I got a good deal and that my time was well spent. I know that they have other things to offer besides classes, but this is the only experience I have had there, so that's what I'm reviewing.

Sorry to say, by comparison to some, this a very small art center, but by comparison, there is none much better, It produces some of the finest artist in the area, and their work is as good as any you will see in any of the worlds finest galleries. It also houses some of the works from famous artist that we get to see and appreciate when part of private or shared exhibits, but no matter what, or when you stop by you will find an exhibit to enjoy. And it is FREE !!! Large donations ( or even small ones ) are greatly appreciated and that is what keeps the doors open., but do stop by !!!
