  • Love the space for the art. It's a great use of an olde church. Elements of gothic and romanesque architecture preserved. A bit of Old Golden. Great selection of artists, of varying media. Easily walkable (if the sidewalks are clear).
  • Beautiful art with eclectic, one-of-a-kind pieces both inside and out.
