ARTISTS FOR THE NEW CENTURY

September 9 - December 23

The Center hosts this show every five years with the assistance of editors and staff from the finest representational publications who nominate artists to be included. Artists are either relatively new to the fine art scene or are those who have painted for some time but have not received the notoriety they deserve.

THE SMALL WORKS SHOW

May 13 - December 23

Every year our Small Works Show greets our visitors with beautiful work in a broad variety of subjects but a size limitation of 14 inches. Work can be taken at time of purchase, unlike work in our other exhibitions. We look forward to another dynamic show in 2017.
