Currently over 85 local artists and artisans work here, including painters, sculptors, photographers, ceramic artists, print-makers, jewelers, and much more. Our guest front lobby artist is Tracy Frein, exhibiting his amazing narrative portrait drawings in colored pencil.

Building on nearly four decades of fostering creativity, the venue nears completion on a multi-year remodeling effort, with double the studios and artists, and more art than ever before. Visitors can meet talented artists and artisans in person, explore their art practices up close, and purchase artwork and hand-made crafts from their creators.
