The McGuffey building was a former grade school and now houses three floors of artist studios and a gift shop featuring their art. It's a pleasant escape from the world outside for a few hours. The halls exhibit artists' works and change monthly. You can also visit the artists in their studios while you're there.
I adore the artists' open studios. The work on display is also always different. And they've been hosting music classes for kids, which parents rave about.
I love this place! Unique and changing art on the walls, most studios you’re welcome to come into and take a look at the artists at works! I haven’t attended any of the classes here but stop in to look around on a regular basis! Love it.
