The result is a state-of-the-art gallery space. Track lighting, neutral wall colors, hardwood floors, and high ceilings create an inviting space suitable for a variety of artwork.

Gallery exhibitions have been ongoing since 2018, showcasing a wide variety of art and artists, continuing the longstanding legacy of arts in Cane Hill. Exhibitions have featured local artists, regional and national competitions, and historic subjects.
