Events - The Gallery
The Gallery, which is adjacent to the lobby in our headquarters, is the venue for four innovative, imaginative craft exhibitions each year.
Our Gallery committee develops a theme for each exhibition and our juried members "think out of the box" to create work in all media that embodies this theme. It's a treat trying to guess how they'll interpret each challenge.
Each exhibition has an opening night reception. All exhibitions are free and open to the public. The work is also for sale.
Exhibition Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, and Saturdays during exhibitions, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The Gallery is open prior to most events held at the Capitol Center for the Arts.
Here is our current exhibition:
