setting it deserved, led to the opening of the gallery with a handful
of local artists. Special awards and recognition in their respective
fields are also considered. A variety of media is represented, including
watercolors, oils, woodcuts, pastels, acrylics, photography, original
prints, collagraphs, lithographs, stained glass and pottery. Styles
