You can spend an hour or so just looking and reading up on local artist. the volunteer at the entrance was very helpful. It was air conditioned for a nice stop and relief from the heat.

The Gallery wasn't very big nor did it have a lot of exhibits. But, it was a nice stop along the way. There is a theater in the building for special events. Very nice building.
