stopped in several times and Lisa was there painting. She took time to show us around and tell us about her art work and the pottery of Mr. Ben, which is quite interesting. I bought a small painting of New Bern done by Lisa (many choices and very affordable.)She is so very lovely.

The GGG opened for the good of the artists in town, a place to display, sell and perform their art - no matter what level of experience. I love looking at all the art in the gallery.
