No Risk, No Reward
“We need to take a leap for what we want, even when there is a risk in the consequence.”—Helen Brown

A group exhibit exploring the concept of Leap Year

2024 brings us a Leap Year which has us contemplating the meaning of the word “leap” and the diverse ways it can be used. LEAP opens February 2, from 3-7pm during the First Friday Gallery Walk in the Old Mill District.

“Whether you are at a crossroad or the beginning of a journey, follow your dreams and leap to new adventures.”Adell Shetterly
In nature, sunlight leaps through the trees, a fish leaps at a fly on the water’s surface and a young fox leaps into new territory in search of his own domain. Our human lives are full of leaps. Some physical, some emotional, some are big and some are small.

“This painting represents the millisecond before a leap forward, that pregnant and electrically charged still moment when one is thinking about that leap into a new direction before it’s actually executed.”Katherine Taylor


Exciting, daunting, challenging, unexpected— leaps take many forms. We may leap at the chance to experience something we have always craved, we leap for joy, we leap into new adventures, projects, jobs, roles and relationships. We take leaps of faith, leaps of imagination and leaps into action. We leap to conclusions, we leap over obstacles and wonder how we did it.




High Desert Bike Lane

“It took some mental gymnastics to tack up this 3.5′ x 4.5’ piece of canvas vertically and complete the entire painting sideways,  because it wouldn’t fit upright on my narrow studio wall.”Anne Gibson


We take leaps forward in the progress of our work, our understanding of ourselves and others and our lives. How might you express this concept? The February exhibit features artistic interpretations of “leap”.



 Spirits Leap

“The great outdoors ignites my heart, mind, soul and imagination. My spirit leaps.”Shelli Walters

We are excited to present this thought provoking exhibit and see how the leap concept comes to life through the hearts, minds and hands of our artists.
