When we purchased the building in 1990, we were searching for our identity.
After a layer of pink primer, we turned this historical building into a whimsical purple art center!
In 2011 we took down the porch that was being used as an art supply room to add on our beautiful new gallery space.
The beautiful garden beds that surround the art house bloom all year long thanks to the talented gardener and photographer Ed Roche.
The Mona Lisa on the front door was painted by Bruce Collins who was teaching art classes and working in the shop at the time. In 2017 we had to replace the front door because it was getting a bit drafty, so Sue Carlin repainted Mona Lisa.
The house next door was purchased in 2012 and it is now a thriving art school. All of our art classes for kids and adults are held in the art school.
