The stories & work of local artists from past and current exhibitions in our gallery space.


Current Exhibit: P.O. Box America

Grimstead’s photo series captures America’s post offices in their rural, small town charm and in their architectural grandeur of a major U.S. city. While exploring rural Virginia towns during his commute from Charlottesville to Richmond in 2014, Grimstead was drawn to the small road side post offices, each a small piece of history, telling the story of their town and the people who lived there. Grimstead soon found himself exploring more and more of the East Coast, eventually making his way from Maine to Florida. "P.O. Box America" tells the story of small town America, and pays homage the USPS, the service that was once and still is, in many ways, the heartbeat of our country.

Artist Ted Lincoln - the fall

Through the influence of both eastern and western cultures, philosophies, and practices, Ted creates paintings that explore the transitory nature of landscape. Drawing from his background and experience in eastern culture he uses industrial materials such as steel, aluminum, acids, and automotive enamel to create landscapes that simultaneously feel strong and illusive. The austere nature of his materials are softened and rendered into contemplative spaces.
