Some local art spaces I enjoy visiting:

Johansson Projects

Great exhibitions often involving unusual materials.

Meridian Gallery

Always thought-provoking and in a space that allows for a personal experience of the artwork, especially upstairs.

Nomad Rugs

Art you can walk on. I loved going to rug stores when I was a kid and I still do. There's just something magical about them, and especially about this store.

Root Division

Great exhibitions, great classes, and artist studios.

Southern Exposure

I sometimes miss the size of their old space but they're still turning out great community programs and inspiring exhibitions.

Swarm Gallery

My favorite work is often in their project space, off the main gallery.

Visual Aid

Not an art space, but a fabulous arts organization that supports artists with life-threatening illnesses and hosts numerous fabulous exhibitions and art auctions every year.
