Diverse emerging artists exhibit some of their art. Each artist works differently and the artists cover large geographic distances. Interests include the environment and recycling, poverty and class, violence and trafficking, beauty and nature, literature and storytelling. There is ethnic culture & police culture on display. Some of the art is about color. Some of the art is black & white or shades of gray. The artists also, tend to develop diverse interests themselves, in working in different media and being open to where their art is going. Not being fearful, using diverse media, and changing things up over time. No purchase is necessary, feel free just to browse and look at art and get a bit involved in the art discussion going on. Enjoy some healthy refreshments. However, if you are interested, the prices for art and jewelry in the gallery are very affordable! FYI – 30% of all sales benefit the Build A Ramp project!
