This smaller art gallery has 3 wings, each featuring a different artist. We were wow-ed by the art and space. There is also an outdoor sensory garden with sculptures - very pleasant.

There's not a lot of galleries out here in West Texas. Free entrance and a calendar posted online to tell about the upcoming changes in art. They often host events as well. What more could you ask for?
