Classes, exhibitions and family workshops are just some of the year-round activities that happen around here. Take a tour with us…

Upon entering, you can purchase artwork created by students and the local community at our small shop to the left. To the right lies our main gallery, home to various art exhibitions like ArtReach, Capstone, So Cal MFA and more.

  1. My mother’s name was Audrey Sheets, my grandfather was Albert Sheets. Both from Illinois, with roots also in Indiana. Both were very artistic. My mother studied art at Washington University in St. Louis. I wondered if there could be a family connection? Thanks.
