Uzoma Obasi, 3rd floor
My paintings are a vibrant celebration of the human natures desire to seek achievement, capturing the essence of our unique journeys and the emotional depth behind our success through abstract expressions of color, shape, and line. Each brushstroke explores the complex tapestry of feelings associated with their accomplishments, from the raw intensity of challenges to the exhilarating highs of their triumphs. Through this visual exploration, I aim to inspire viewers to connect with their resilience and spirit, encouraging a reflection on the pursuit of greatness.
John Rajtar, 2nd floor
I have been blessed with a gift, one that enables me to take the ordinary and transform it is extraordinary. I write in the ancestral language of nature, opening a window between worlds.
Shell Jiang, 1st floor
I am observing and thinking when I take photos. When the moment it clicks, I feel the connection between me and the subject, be it a frozen lake that was once filled with vigorous movement, be it a landscape that evokes emotion, or a scene that is deliberately focused or defocused.
Terry McDaniel, 1st floor
My photographs document the last of the Lakota spiritual leader, Jim Miller’s Dakota 38+2 Memorial ride in 2023. The images share the depth of the spiritual connection of the riders and their horses as they travel in cold weather to commemorate their ancestors hanged in Mankato Minnesota on December 26th after the US Dakota War in 1862.

The art shows change every four months to display new talent and media. Gallery openings offer residents a chance to open our space to friends, family and others who want to support our local art community.
