Art is expression, communication, exploration. It is a plunge into creativity. It can please us or upset us. Art educates us and challenges us. It can reflect or influence our reality. "Art is life…life is art”.
Our mission is to support and promote quality, contemporary art in all different media. It is a Gallery and Centre that serves its community and strives to reach beyond its borders. It encourages and promotes public awareness, understanding and appreciation of the arts by recruiting and involving the public in the art process, all the while working hard to promote and support its artists.
