"Bringing Art to the People and People to the Arts"

Evening/Afternoon with an Artist

Our “Evening/Afternoon with an Artist” events are a great opportunity to meet artists in person and hear directly from them about their work. Events are scheduled a few times a year, frequently coinciding with current exhibitions. Events are is the perfect preview of an upcoming show, including an artist-guided tour. Don’t miss your chance to hear directly from the artist(s) about what they were thinking when they created their work. Learn why they created the pieces and ask any questions you have in an informal Q & A session. Best yet, you’ll be first in line to purchase an amazing work of art.

Other Recent Events:

Warren Carpenter presents “Heartwood”

“Woodworking has always been a part of my life, but what else would you expect from a Carpenter? I was a custom homebuilder for 30 years and built furniture and sculpted in wood in my spare time. Since 1999, my passion has been turning wood. With a creative eye and an ever-expanding knowledge of wood, I am always watching for that special piece of a tree that can become a unique turning. Since August 2017, I have concentrated on sculptural pieces. This one-man show is the result of a lot of hard work, self-exploration, and discovery. My goal with all my artwork is to expose the natural beauty of the wood in a pleasant shape that when finished will stimulate both the senses of sight and feel.”
