As a visitor, our goal is approachability in art and inclusiveness. Our crowds for exhibitions are generally pretty diverse. I think us being young, professional, and friendly goes a long way. We reach out to everyone, greet them with a smile, and try to strike up conversation. We genuinely just want to connect with everyone: artists, visitors, collectors – it doesn't matter! We will get you involved and invested in our art scene.

HERRON: What exhibitions and events do you have coming up?

HAINES: As mentioned earlier, our next two exhibitions will feature Herron students. We will also host artists meetups with Cat Head Press starting on March 29. The first meetup will be in our space, the next one will be at Cat Head Press. Aside from that, we will have an exhibition calendar through November 2018 chalk full of great artists.
