Gallery 3 & Valley Arts United

Throughout the month of October poems that were submitted for Gallery 3's contest are posted with the accompanying artwork which inspired the poets.  Some of the prose will make you laugh out loud while others can make your eyes well up with tears.  Visit, take your time and read the poems and look at featured artwork with fresh eyes!  You never know, you may walk away too feeling inspired anew.


For those gearing up for the holidays, Gallery 3 will be featuring their traditional November Miniature Show beginning November 5th. 2-D artists will be showing small paintings, perfect for holiday gifts! Some 3-D artists will have small creations for your enjoyment too. Give the gift of art.

Also, there will also be a special Veteran's Day Art Exhibit, in observance with the Veteran's Day and to honor our veterans,  Gallery 3 will host an exhibition by Chris Hopkins.  Mr. Hopkins' work is in collections at the Library of Congress, the White House and NFL Properties.  His paintings have been commissioned to define American culture from the Super Bowl to the Persian Gulf War.  His artwork depicting the Tuskegee Airmen that will eventually find its home at the Rosa Parks Museum in Montgomery, Alabama will be included.  Do not miss this exquisite opportunity!  Special exhibition hours & reception:  November 10th, 1 to 4 pm and November 11th, 2 to 5 pm.
