We stumbled on this venue. It is an older building with exhibition space, teaching space and studios. When we arrived there was a drawing class going on, but we were still encouraged to look at what was displayed in the same space. We quietly went around the perimeter of the class looking at sculpture, mixed media, abstract and realistic pieces. We were encouraged to go upstairs and look at a special exhibit about books. There were some collage book pages, several realistic, but amusing paintings of stacks of books and objects on a theme. Like, a stack of books including, A Taste of Honey, Winnie the Pooh, The Art of Beekeeping,with honey dripping down the side of some books, a bee and so much more. The paintings were far more subtle and entertaining than this explanation. Our favorite, however, was a floor sculpture, that would be lost in translation, just go up the stairs to see it.
We were lucky to happen upon a local weaver, Claire Perrault, who welcomed us into her shared studio space. She explained some of her tools to my spouse and gave me a few tips about future weaving projects.
What a warm and welcoming spot to see some local art and artists.
