MEINECKE GALLERY
The Meinecke gallery was created in honor of Father Meinecke, the Priest who saved this historic building in 1964 and devoted it entirely to the Art Community. The Meinecke Gallery is a beautifully situated room with tall, long windows that continually provide natural light throughout the day.

ART NEVADA GALLERY
This gallery was founded by Mimi Patrick, former President of the Board and wonderful ceramicist, (although she prefers to be called a “potter.”).

4th FLOOR GALLERY 
This gallery is on the 4th floor in the large Attic space of the building. It has a dual purpose: a studio for our Resident Artist and a gallery for them to show in. When there is no Artist in Residence we operate this gallery for ecclectic and unusual artforms, some of which may be confronting for some viewers. We might sometimes recommend parental guidance in this gallery. It has a high pitch and slanted ceilings and one very large window with a fire escape.

VAN BOKKELEN GALLERY

The Van Bokkelen Gallery is a very large space, at the ground entrance of the building. It encompasses the corridor from one end of the building to the other. North – South facing, this gallery is a traditional historic hall space with 13 large areas for exhibition. It has traditional wain-scotting and continuous picture rail for hanging, and multi-directional track lighting.
