WHAT IS THE MAIN STREET GALLERY?
Main Street Gallery and Gift Shop is a Co-Operative Gallery run voluntarily by the artists of the Valley Arts Council. All members in good standing are welcome to add their work to our gallery and are encouraged to spend time working in the gallery.
The main objective of the Main Street Gallery is to raise awareness of the arts in our community and to give artists a space in which to showcase and sell their work.
WHO ARE THE ARTISTS OF THE MAIN STREET GALLERY?
The artists of the Valley Arts Council who show work here come from all over the Valley. We have artists of all ages, from teens to those in their eighties.
Coming from all walks of life, their artistic journeys range from college taught to self-taught. Some are newcomers to the area, while others have lived their whole lives here. But they all have one thing in common; a passion for art and the desire to share their talent with the world.
The artistic mediums with which our artists work are as varied as they are unique. We have artists working in the fields of sculpture, pottery, painting, photography, glass, recycled art, graffiti, jewelry and more.
CHECK OUT OUR GIFT SHOP!
Browse our always expanding collection of smalls and inexpensive gift items. It offers an opportunity for artists to sell smaller works at easily affordable prices. This area of the Main Street Gallery space is a great spot for someone looking for jewelry, hand-made cards, reproduction prints, small pieces of pottery and more.
Every few months we have Special Shows; themed shows with official opening nights. These are not-to-be-missed events. With live entertainment, light refreshments, the night is always a lot of fun. They are also a great opportunity to get to meet the artists whose work graces the walls and pedestals of the Gallery.
