The GMOA features not only local artists, but nationally known artists. They have programs that encourage participation from up and coming local artists. It's always a great visit. more »
A very nice local Museum. Quiet and not too crowded. We really enjoyed and appreciated the exhibits and even the architecture of the building itself.
This small museum does a great job of mixing local programming that serves the community such as regionally relevant exhibitions and classes with national caliber shows. It's a nationally accredited art museum.
