10Am TO 12PM

Meet our Featured Member Artist, Maria Thompson Seep. From her earliest memories, Maria has always enjoyed the arts, specifically painting and drawing. She works in a variety of mediums, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pen and ink, creating artwork that is expressive and vibrant in color. Maria primarily creates artwork based on land and sea scapes, animals, and other outdoor scenery, but enjoys painting the occasional pet portrait as well. Her inspiration comes from being very observant, always paying attention to everything around her that she sees, hears, and feels. View some of her pieces on display, talk with her, and learn more about the process for creating her artwork.

10Am TO 2PM

In our gallery, our current exhibition, ‘Carnival Of Curiosities’, will be on display. Come witness the wonder and allure of the great circus spectacle right here in our gallery, featuring works that showcase an array of vibrant colors, vintage vibes, and a few curious characters, all focusing on the circus theme. An exhibition that is sure to entertain and excite all.
