New for April: Richard Knupp has gone beyond his wonderful birds and filled our Gallery 3 with impressive images. From the poignant "Dawn Brings only Despair" depicting the plight of the homeless to the beauty of the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite. The beauty of the female body is shown as well as not so beautiful assorted beach bodies. An exhibit worth seeing!

Dale Hellums is exhibiting his sculpture "Spiritual Growth The Great Awakening" for the first time. This is a complex piece of art depicting the struggle of the human condition in striving for spiritual growth. Using Norse and Chinese symbols he takes us through these trials to reach enlightenment. Materials used include Cherrywood, Black Walnut, Birdseye Maple, polished aluminum and epoxy.

Truly, an inspirational piece--not to be missed.
On display through May.

Whoops! Forgot to mention that many gallery artists have reduced their prices in preparation of the final closing on May 31st.
Our artists continue to produce quality art, please don't miss this special opportunity to own a special piece of art.
