Though chilly outside, it was toasty and spirited inside at the re-opening celebration of the Visual Arts Center (formerly the Hand Workshop) Dec. 6. The beautiful new interior -- featuring bigger and brighter gallery and class spaces competed only with the celebrants' fabulous style. The gala coincided with the True F. Luck Gallery's inaugural installation of works by sculptor Elizabeth King, adding an extra element to the excitement. With a new community space and a metal sculpture area on the way, the Visual Arts Center is becoming a pre-eminent spot to see and create new works. View the photos.
