Art Works opened the art center—25,000 square feet of studio, event and gallery space in 2003. Artists who rent studio space, some to make artwork, others to display and sell their work, are a part of a great art community.

The gallery provides monthly exhibits and opening receptions every 4th Friday from 7 - 10 pm. These are free and open to the public.

The galleries are used for weddings, fundraisers, parties, meetings, seminars and classes. There’s always something happening at Art Works. It’s a great place to see and buy contemporary art. And admission is free!

Glenda Kotchish - Art Works, Inc. Owner and Executive Director

"I am a painter and ceramic artist.   But I’m also a business lady and love being part of the community, solving problems with creative solutions.  I’ve programmed computers and been an analyst as well as a banker, so all these skills I use at Art Works.   I love a party, so 4th Friday receptions at Art Works is perfect for me – a party every month… except December that is. "
