Connecting Artists and Communities

Connecting Artists and Communities

Gallery 164 partners with our artists to create a bridge of understanding the effects of art on various groups of people in our community. Through our artists and their work, we hope to evoke a community working to achieve a cultural identity and attract people to its uniqueness.

Art represents a wide range of emotions, chronicles history, and embodies societal values. Involving our artists, we look forward to partnerships with citizens, visitors, businesses, and organizations to assist in growing the local economy, tourism, public health, and social cohesion.

We invite you to visit the gallery, attend an artist talk, or stay updated on our activities through our website. We look forward to seeing you throughout the community.
