The annual Intergenerational mission trip to Double Head Cabbage, Belize began as a one-year mission to run a summer camp for local youth and has turned into a long-term commitment to provide resources and support to the local school, complimented by meaningful relationships with local leaders, youth and schools in Belize.

The Focus Gallery features our all-media national juried show, “RED,” which explores this powerful color, used by artists to attract attention, express emotion or interpret a feeling. Historically, the color red in art was associated with sacrifice, danger and courage. But messages and connotations change with time and modern red is the color of love, joy, heat, passion, violence or anger. Juried by renowned watercolor artist Frank Eber, http://www.frankeber.com/
Opening Reception: Friday, May 1, 5-8pm
Gallery Hours: M-F 10am – 6pm, Saturday 10am – 2pm
