“Our desire is to create a space for emerging artists of a visionary nature. Whether self-taught or raised within the disciplines of art, we believe that the essence of true artistic expression comes from an earnest desire to “say something.” We aim to facilitate the artist by promoting the exhibition and sale of art to the general public and invited members of the local art community.”
“Artists have a duty to find an adequate expression to convey it to as many souls as possible, ensuring that their works are accessible enough to be appreciated”- George Sand 1872
