Classes & Launch receptions


Academy Art & Frame Company is excited to announce that we are having Art Classes at the Gallery. Kim Costello is someone who believes in encouraging beginning artists of all ages to express themselves. For this reason, it is inspiring to have award winning artists willing to share their artistic passions with others. Please check out below the different mediums and groups that are available.

Peak Digital Imaging Society Meeting
We are pleased to announce that Peak Digital Imaging Society, a local photography and digital art club, will now hold their monthly meeting here in the gallery. The group meets 9 months out of the year (no meetings in August, November or December) on the 4th Thursday from 7-9pm.

The group is open to all ages and all skill levels. They hold 3 meetings that are Competitions, 3 that are mini workshops, and 3 speakers from the digital world. There are no dues, it is a free club.
