Say hello to Preslar Art Initiatives!

On June 1, the Preslar Gallery became the Preslar Art Initiatives.

There will be, initially, two components to the work of PAI:

Upcoming special events

Queer art party is cancelled for this year. Raincheck is available.

Unfortunately, due to a lot of chaotic situations surrounding this event, we had to call off this event. However, if you and/or your group would like to spend a couple of nights at the retreat center during the month of July (weekdays are better, some weekends are also possible), please contact Willow at least two weeks in advance. Same conditions apply (i.e., bring your own camping gear and equipment, be self-reliant, etc.). A suggested contribution of $10-$20 per person is appreciated but not required.

If you would like an indoor guesthouse accommodation, standard rates will apply. Reserve here.

Summer "pop-up" exhibits!!

The Preslar Art Initiatives will be having one or two summer “pop-up” exhibit(s) at Estancia Serenova's Alice Tarbell Cultural Space. This will be somewhat different in format from the previous shows at the Preslar Gallery.

These pop-up exhibits will be considered special events on an ad hoc basis, and their schedules may be modified.
