Eco-friendly cleaning workshop

May 26, 2019 from 2-4pm. Are you curious about how to clean your home with plastic-free, earth-friendly, non-toxic ingredients? Kick-start your spring cleaning with this DIY workshop.

Have You Heard Us Yet?

A collaborative, all-woman group exhibition with 10 writers and 15 visual artists; collaborating but having never met! The show is centered around what women’s​ hopes are for 2018 in regards to equality as well as being a voice for the issues that they feel have largely not been heard, digested, and acted upon by those currently​ in power within our society.

New Works, New Problems

"This exhibit brings together a group of artists whose visual languages are variously tempered or liberated by the mash-up culture in which we live; a culture that at times anoints absolutes and 'correctness' even as it evaluates the innumerable outcomes, solutions and potentials derived from personal, cultural, historical, and scientific sources." - Adam Welch, PF/PCA Curator
