Gallery Shows

Join us in Leland Gallery for marvelous displays of local art

Central to the property is the Leland Gallery, where we host regular art openings featuring the work of world renowned artists, regional favorites and even students from our classes.  The Leland Gallery is a beautiful space lined with windows that allow sunlight to pour in and illuminate the art within.  With free admission, the gallery is open to the public during our normal business hours, Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

All pieces on display in the Leland Gallery are for sale. A portion of the proceeds from your gallery purchase will fund our mission and directly support our Outreach Program, where we partner with other organizations to provide art experiences to our friends who need it most.

Join us for Artist Receptions!

With each new show set in the Leland Gallery, OTAS hosts an opening artist reception to celebrate the work and the maker.  Stop by for this wonderful opportunity to experience quality art and speak to the artists themselves!  Artist receptions are typically held on every other Thursday evening from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, and are free and open to the public.  Please see the schedule below to learn about upcoming shows.
