OUR COMMUNITY LOVES THE ART CENTER

Free Family Fun!

The Art Center is a community art gallery which features pieces & exhibitions from local talent. Not only can you purchase art, but families can chime in to their own creativity during their free family art time. Materials are provided & lessons are guided at your pace. Wonderful gem in the community!

The Art Center features numerous galleries with a huge variety of art, and classrooms aimed at helping the local art community grow and have opportunities for collaboration- both things all artists need!  When I wanted to talk with someone who could answer some questions about the Center and how its artists became members and how other things functioned, there was no hesitation in sharing what information they had.  It seems to be a wonderful place to buy and showcase local art, allowing their local art community to thrive!! Not only will we be back, but in our own hometown, we will be patterning our offerings to our local artists in a similar way!

Community Art At Its' Best!

Wow! We were looking for things to do within walking distance of where we were staying, so we wandered on over to the Art Center. Absolutely fell in love with all of the local art and artists on display there. If we had more time, we may have signed up to take a class while visiting. It was very low key when we went, but still nice to roam around and take out time. Definitely going back.
