All works are original creations, in various categories including aqua media, ceramics, decorative arts, graphics, jewelry, stained glass, oil, photography, print making, and sculpture. The entries are judged on originality, creativity, and use of a particular medium, and the best are awarded prizes.

(Regular gallery hours: Wednesday through Friday, noon to 4 pm; Saturday 10 am to 2 pm.)
