Managed by volunteer Sharon Owen, the Gallery features the works of more than 300 local artists along with a variety of themed exhibits that change every six to eight weeks. The staff of 30-plus volunteers serve the community by maintaining an information area for visitors offering brochures, maps, and discounts, along with friendly service and hospitality.

This season kicks off with a Quilts Past & Present Exhibit for April and May featuring a variety of quilts including hand-made, vintage, and fiber art quilts. A special exhibit of Jeanne Eickhoff’s work is displayed in a beautiful handmade quilt in the lobby and her original works are available in the Gallery. Exhibits of basketry and pottery, featuring local artists, authors, and historians, are planned for this summer.
