The mission of Art/Place is to provide a place where professional and emerging artists can interact creatively and exhibit without the restrictions that might be imposed by a commercial gallery. Members can experiment and develop work in a broad range of mediums and subject matter. Additionally, our mission includes interaction with the community by way of rotating solo or group exhibits, art talks, lectures, demonstrations, workshops and critiques.
A frequent tradition has featured "guest" artists which have included Sol Lewitt, Gabor Peterdi, Antonio Frasconi and James Grashow to name a few. The "Artists Invite Artists" show has also been a popular exhibit. Art/Place continues to present their work in other venues to ever expand our audience.
The diversity in the art of the members includes works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, photography, various forms of printmaking, collage, and digitally produced art. Art/Place welcomes area educators and institutions to bring groups in for the exchange of ideas. We offer internships for local high school students looking for experience in an art environment, and we are always encouraging other potential connections with the community.
