Today, the historic 5500-square-foot building has five in-house artists: glass artist Curnes (Curnes Creations), bronze sculptor Dave Biehl (The Bronze Horse), silversmith Levent Oz (Silver of Oz), acrylics painter Jane Kathol (JK Fine Arts), and oil painter/ charcoal artist Ashley Spitsnogle (Ashley Spitsnogle Art).
“We have a unique set of artists,” Curnes remarks. “Each one is doing something very different from the others.”
The gallery also hosts a monthly visiting artist and displays artwork created by Curnes’ sister and grandfather. Oz teaches three to four classes each week, and visitors drop into the studio frequently to create their own coasters and magnets from scrap glass. Twice a year the gallery hosts a two-day open house that attracts 1,000 to 1,200 people. The event features live music, appetizers, and wine from local businesses.
