New Community ArtSpace turns 20!
Since 1999, ArtSpace has served as a central space for curiosity, healing and connection.  Through the ongoing support from New Community Church, ArtSpace has been committed to providing an affordable avenue for artists of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels to express themselves.  Now in its 20th year, ArtSpace is opening up the space (again!) for new creative opportunities to emerge.  Starting in September, we will begin an open studio model for artists with weaving, black and white darkroom photography, and ceramic experience to use our facilities on a regular basis. For more information contact Rachel Dickerson, ArtSpace Director at

 Touchstone Foundation for the Arts
The Foundation is a tax-exempt organization created in 2012 by the artists of Touchstone Gallery to create opportunities for emerging artists through its Emerging Artists Fellowship program and to support art-related programs that engage a broader community.  The support of the Foundation made this exhibition possible.
