Someone has spent a lot of money renovating this huge old apple warehouse into an art gallery adjacent to Cafe Indigo, which is in the same building. There is nothing out of the road to indicate that either the gallery or the restaurant are off the road about a half mile down a nondescript lane, but there is a sign for the Copper Fox Distillery and Copper Fox Antiques.In the gallery there are spaces for a dozen or more local artists to display their works, and many of the artists were present on the day we visited River District Arts. Once you've been through the gallery and had lunch at Cage Indigo, you can stroll over to see the whiskey works at Copper Fox Distillery or wander through the cavernous Copper Fox Antiques building.
