It is a little out of the way, but always worth the trip. Visitors always enjoy aside- trip to see the local artisans pieces and displays. Their Gift Shop always has something 'just right' for that special person on your list

This small gallery has two large viewing rooms and a well stocked and interesting gift shop. It is just the right size for a highway traveller, career artist, hobby artist, or even gift shopper.

Support the local artists and some wonderful art and practical items at the gift shop. Great for gifts for others and a 5 minute walk from the airport if your flight is delayed. Well worth dropping by.

A little hidden but take the time to find it you wont be disappointed. Great place to see both local artists exhibits and some great gift items for sale. I try to go every month as the exhibits are always changing. The people working there are very friendly.
