The Community Center Art Gallery
The gallery on the first floor of the Community Center is the program's primary exhibition space. Shows are typically on view 5-6 weeks. Exhibitions feature both established and emerging artists with original, thought provoking work of professional quality. Community engagement is central to the mission of the Community Center Art Gallery. Local, national, and international artists who are interested in leading one or more paid, hands-on workshops in conjunction with their show will be given first consideration.
The gallery, formerly a classroom, is a multi-use space which supports a dynamic presence for contemporary art in community life. The space is shared throughout the week, hosting a variety of groups and meetings, creating a unique opportunity to engage diverse, new gallery viewers of all ages.
The gallery is accessible to the public Monday through Saturday from 9am to 10pm, and Sunday from 9am to 7pm, whenever the space is not reserved.

The space is accessible to the public Monday through Friday from 6am to 10pm, and Saturday through Sunday from 8am to 9:30pm
