Metered street parking or free parking lots nearby. More than 80 artists, many of them local, with art in every price range. Remember to wear your mask.

How to shop at the best art gallery in town from your couch and make a donation to the Gateway? Click this link https://artisansintheloop.square.site/ and when you place an order add the word Gateway after your name in the shipping information. The gallery will make a donation to us and you will receive beautiful hand made works of art. You may also make a “contactless” purchase (and pay no shipping charge) by choosing pickup rather than ship. We will have your order ready when you arrive. Through the month of August!

Summer 2020

It’s July and we miss performing for you. We have been able to convert some past performances to digital format and would love to share them. You’ll see William Schatzkamer on the podium, and many familiar faces in the orchestra. While we can’t be together this summer, we wanted to share music, both past and present. Please subscribe to our YouTube channel to receive notifications as videos are added.

We hope that this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well. Thank you so much for being part of our community. It has been our privilege to bring you joyous music since 1964.

With great sadness we must announce that due to safety concerns caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to present our concerts this season. We hope to present four concerts in 2021, with all the beautiful music originally planned for 2020. 

For now, follow us on Facebook for a daily musical post and we look forward to keeping you informed about the summer concert plans.
