The Gallery and Studios primary mission is to expand students knowledge and appreciation of art through hands on experience of creating.  There is a Latin phrase, “Docendo discimus”, by teaching we learn. By having opportunities to teach, artist members can experience their craft with renewed excitement.

The studios are a great place to create and even collaborate.  Artists do not have to work in isolation.

The last part of the Gallery and Studio mission is to provide channels for artists to share and sell their work. With a gift shop, Gallery for shows and our online store we are sure to find the right channel to sell our creations.

The 550 Gallery was established in 1998 as a venue to display and promote the work of local artists.  We continue to host art shows throughout the year highlighting various local artists.
The classroom studio space has evolved over the years from life drawing classes and painting lessons to the recent addition of a pottery studio and a glass fusion studio. The pottery area is equipped with 5 wheels, a pug mill, a slab roller, an extruder and a huge variety of molds and tooling equipment. The glass studio has cutting systems, grinders, and several kilns.
