“I acquired this space in 2010; it was then primarily my art studio, and I turned it into a gallery to show my artwork and art process. Then I realized there are so many great, inspiring artists and artistic energy in my community that I decided to open the space up periodically to other locally-based artists; and these can be various emerging, up ‘n coming artists—especially visual artists but also in the field of performing arts and music.”–Jed Williams
