We are also open by appointment or chance, and are happy to arrange group tours. Just email or call to arrange a tour or a visit outside regular hours.

Unfortunately, we must close the gallery to install each new exhibit. Please call or check the Current Exhibition page to be sure we're open. The gallery is also closed on Easter Sunday, July 4th, Thanksgiving, and from Christmas Eve through New Year's Day. We close early on Freakfest Saturdays in late October (exact dates vary).
