“Love Art? A Must see!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Great area to experience the local artists and their work. Loved it! Look for local coupons to use for entrance fees. The museum has lots of quirky as well as traditional pieces. Lots of mixed media pieces. Behind the museum visit the hot house. The glass blowing demonstration was awesome!!! Took a zillion pics there! Beautiful glass pieces in their store. They have classes for all ages (for a hefty fee) - look between the museum and the hothouse to see the "gallery" of classwork. They had a lot of younger classes work shown when we were there...paper jelly fish suspended in air. My hubby even enjoyed this visit, and he thinks some of the newer artwork is bizarre, but enjoyed the majority of this, especially the glass work.

“Hot Shop Glass Experience”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Everyone needs to experience the one-on-one glass experience at the Hot Shop! It was amazing..something that will wet your "art-buds" to try again and again. David, my instructor, was very good. He walked me through the steps of making my personal sculptor - a glass egg-shaped paperweight. I can't enough as to what an AMAZING experience this was for me. Strongly encourage all to explore this option while visiting the area.

“Entertaining Glass Blowing exhibit”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stayed through two presentations, and visited with the artists. Was a very interesting presentation, and the related glass work for sale was exceptional. The other art in the attached space was also very nice.

“Nice, Small Art Center”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is small and resident friendly art center. They had an exhibit of local art, Chihully glass, and a free glass blowing exhibit. I believe they have art classes too. Definitely worth an hour of your time. Plus, the exterior of the buidling is really cool. Great renovation.
