EXHIBITS

Welcome to 2017! Pleiades Gallery has exciting new art arriving all the time. Fresh shows are installed in our main gallery approximately every 6-8 weeks, and a different artist is featured in our upstairs gallery every month. We have monthly receptions every Third Friday (from 6-9 pm) as well as many other events. See below for show listings and events through 2017. All events are free and open to the public.
