Current & Upcoming Exhibits
June 7 - July 25 | Upstairs Gallery
With a fairytale quality, “Night Watch” takes viewers on a journey into the realms of dreaming, memory, and the unconscious. In these paintings by Janet Lucking, clocks literally open themselves as time seems to stand not-quite-so-still. Birds, doorknobs, and other playthings of the mind gather in this mysterious and playful cosmos.
Art from Harkin’s House
June 7— July 25 | Downstairs Gallery
Youth art made in collaboration with the Westside Cultural Alliance's Artist in Residence Program. Harkins House is a short term temporary shelter that provides care for youth going through the Washington County Juvenile Justice System. The mission of Harkins House is to promote growth in youth and their families.
