The Best of Gage exhibition is on display through July 17th; but even if you miss the big night, you can still see the artwork throughout the entire building in various mediums spanning nine categories: abstract, beginner, figure, landscape, portrait, sculpture, still life, teen and narrative. Don’t miss the winning pieces installed in the Steele Gallery – on display until August 28!
