Recent exhibitions have included: Metaphysical Abstraction: Contemporary Approaches to Spiritual Practice; Process & Place: The Transformative Potential of Artist Residencies; and Local Treasures: Six Extraordinary Artists (Jim Melchert, Katherine Sherwood, Squeak Carnwath, Robert Brady, Livia Stein, Gale Wagner).
