Congratulations to all the winners and participants in this year’s Autumn Art Festival! Thank you to all the sponsors and volunteers who made it possible.

There won’t be an -in-person gala this year due to continued health concerns. However, we will have an on-line auction of art and gifts between Sept. 13 and 25. Please join us online at and support the gallery by bidding on your favorite pieces!

All the pieces in the AAF show are for sale. Your support makes a difference. Please consider making an additional donation if you can.
