Welcome

We are a community center that provides art experiences for all ages, and offers support and creative opportunities for local artists.

We aim to cultivate an environment in which the arts flourish, grow, and enrich our community.

We provide an art gallery with exhibits by local artists in a variety of media, art classes for adults and children, open studio space, a venue for small concerts and presentations from musicians, artists and writers, and a place that encourages creativity and artistic talent in our own community.
