PLAN YOUR VISIT
All three floors of the Center are open to the public during gallery hours and present works of art to ponder or purchase. The studios of our resident artists are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Center. If you see an open studio door during your visit, feel free to go inside and meet the artists to learn about the work directly from the source.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY: 3 to 9 PM
SATURDAY: 11 AM to 6 PM
(Or by appointment.)
Free docent-led tours are offered every Saturday at 11:30 AM and 2:30 PM. These tours are designed to introduce visitors to the Center, offer an interactive overview of our first-floor exhibit, and help to facilitate conversation with current resident artists (if available). 45 minutes.
We can accommodate requests for group tours Monday through Friday if given advance notice. Please contact Angela Grauel at email@example.com.
