Presenting local artists including emerging through accomplished, traditional through contemporary. Our gallery is an ever changing palate of thought provoking inventiveness. 


Arts are the window through which we connect deeply to ourselves and each other. We offer workshops and classes that stimulate creativity in visual, literary, and performing arts for youth and adults. 


Experience the transformative power of performance with artists from all corners of the globe. From music to dance, drama to comedy, we offer performances that stimulate imagination.


Our role is that of collaborator and consensus builder, partnering with other organizations to ensure that visual, performing, and literary arts flourish and remain accessible to all.
