This is the 3rd annual West of Center: All Media Show. It features a wide range of art including paintings, sculptures, glass mosaics and photography. This exhibit wraps up the same weekend as the Arts and Acts festival. The festival is a fundamental source of funding for the Art House. Shows like the West of Center are free to the public but require funding for everything from paying the jurors to keeping the lights on.
"This is our major fundraiser of the year, so it's important to us that it be successful," said Joan Potter Thomas, manager of the Art House.
The Art House holds smaller fundraisers throughout the year, as well. Art classes, house memberships and the store on the first floor of the Art House also bring in some revenue for the exhibits.
