Every time I am in town, I drop by to see the local exhibit. Some times it is school children or art classes, sometimes adjudicated work, sometimes a wonderful well-known artist. There are classes here in the cool basement as well as special events.

We're so glad you got a chance to see the exhibit. We'll be sad when we have to pack it up. Hope to see you here at PCA again.

You won't find a better place to buy gifts (jewelry, books, cards --very reasonable), see spectacular art or attend one of their many programs -- a special favorite is open mike night.
