6. Take new art home or just admire the beauty of talented artists by visiting Southwest Gallery. Here, impressionist art is on display, including the work by Oleg Turchin.

John Cook is another featured artist, who paints with passion and often captures images of nature and life on canvas or watercolor paper. Southwest Gallery is open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
7. Valley House Gallery’s latest exhibit is opening Nov. 7! They will be presenting three solo exhibitions, featuring the works of Brian Cobble, Scott Gentling and Jean Andrews. Valley House is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, no appointment necessary, and masks are required for entry.
