Bobbi Walker | Owner
Art is inspiring because it gives us a glimpse into our own true essence.
It also reflects our collective humanity, encouraging us to feel deeply and think broadly.
Art heals by lifting our spirits and bringing us together in conversation about the ever-changing state of the world.
As patrons, we are the guardians of culture, we are called upon to instill the value, and thereby, ensuring the gift of art for future generations.
