Stunning paintings, ceramics, digital art and jewelry were on display during the month of March for the Artist’s Showcase.

Several local artists covered a four by eight-foot space in the gallery which provided an eclectic floor to ceiling exhibit and kept the guest’s eyes roaming the room. The showcased art doesn’t stop in the front of the gallery like it usually does, local artists’ displays continue all the way to the back of the gallery. While in the back, you can also get a look at the marvelous digital photography on display for the March Artist of the Month.
