January 3 - February 3, 2018  Carol Ellington  |  Tom Sitzman

November 1 - November 25, 2017  Nancy Lepo   |   Dan Klima

An evening with live music and colorful textiles by Rachel Droppers in the Tiny Art Gallery. The main gallery will exhibit paintings by Bob Matthews.

Dan Klima began working with wood at an early age. The color and grain found in his sculptures are natural. The theme of his works is celebration of the wood's grain - the interesting and visually pleasing form of each board and plank. His design is ever changing with each bit of wood removed as he discover what lies beneath the surface.

Nancy Lepo's artworks convey her love of science and mathematics. Einstein and Hawking are her heroes. Her works are done on paper using pointillism techniques.     

November 29 - December 30,  2017  | Julie K. Thorsen  Train Cars with Feelings and Other New Works

Award winning artist, JK Thorsen, has her own style. Without cliché, her details and humanity are personal yet lasting. Not prone to pretension nor over-production, she continues to incorporate ecologically responsible materials and practices in her work.


Thorsen reminds us of play and presence while responding to our times with a whisper. Whether producing on-site - or in her unheated workshop - risk and growth are key, while relationships and awareness remain foremost.

Show in front Gallery

May 2 - June 2, 2018 | Bob Mathews and Rachel Droppers

October 4 - October 28, 2017  Cody Wheelock   |  Ann O'Hara  

Courtney Porto works in a variety of media including charcoal, pencil, yarn, acrylic and mixed media.  Her creativity lies in the planning and ideas behind a piece, not the execution.  Most of her work is meticulously planned with minimalist aesthetic.  Because of this, most of her pieces center on a single focal point with simple or blank backgrounds and little or no color.  She takes great pleasure when the end result matches the vision in her head.

"The movement, composition, form and gracefulness of the female figure captivate me. The body is so many things all at once. It is a vessel, a storyteller and a vehicle.” But rather than mere figure painting or studies, Porto says that “the bodies in my work represent ideas and concepts rather than specific individuals.”  Figures & Forms will celebrate the human figure both in body and the abstract.

Ann O'Hara - Pastels for Small Spaces (TAG)


Pastels are very forgiving... important in paintings and life. Spontaneity, bold, vibrant, each of Ann's pastels has a story. From the rolling hills to the concentrated look of a little girl, Ann wants to convey more than just painting but a connection to the subject. 

Future Expositions

Evelyn Render Katz  -  "New Work: Encaustic, Collage and Cold Wax



Inspired by her new environment, Evelyn Render Katz explores the use of different media and color palette. The paintings convey mystery and dream - like quality. Her use of birds is symbolic of our relationship to nature and our inescapable responsibility for it.

Reception: Friday December 1 | 5:30PM - 9PM

2019 Art Exhibition TBA

Ken Heimbuch  - New Works



Ken's paintings are influenced by all kinds of small unimportant things in his world. He is inspired by the shapes of a snow bank, water boiling in a pot, soap suds in the dish water, as well as clothes turning in the dryer. Ken gets excited by bug flying around a porch light. He captures the expression of what he sees and feels. Ken says he strives to make his art very different than other artists.
