Thanks for the visits. You are quite right. Each month is another show. Please stop by in March for our Members Show, one of our best shows of the year.

Wonrful place, great local artworks at very reasonable prices for original art. Each artist takes a turn at the desk. As a. Non profit the shop makes no money but instead all profit goes to the artist. They teach art classes as well.

It’s a great way to begin original art collection. Representing member artists, some members are famous and some not so famous artists. The art displayed are not just pleasing to the senses, but that tend to be investment worthy as well. COAL established in 1951...More

Wow, what a cool art gallery! All local artists, with some very talented people. The feel of the gallery is welcoming, and member artists who sit are eager to show you their work in the show. Neat to see the winners of the monthly shows.
