A belief that “ART IS FOR EVERYONE” is a good motto for the gallery. They want all facets of the community to visit and view the amazing creations that are shown in their space. They remind people that art is in everything around you, the clothes you wear, the cars you drive, the architecture surrounding you, mother nature, the food you eat, you hairstyles, your shoes, they way you trim their dogs! Color, shape, form, variety, texture surround us and make our lives richer.
