Artist Equity

The gallery is an artist-run cooperative with a diverse membership. Our members are committed to social equity and work to promote it both through their art and their work in a range of community organizations. A small works exhibit allows the gallery to show the work of more artists and be more inclusive. In past years, this show has had diverse content, reflecting the varied lives of the artist. It has also given an opportunity to emerging artists.
