The public is welcome to browse through 100 works of fine art purchased by the town. The self-tour features creations by the area’s best artists. View paintings, drawings, sculpture, fiber and ceramic art, mixed media and hand-carved wood work and old and new photographs ranging from a painting of a giant lighthouse to a delicate floral watercolor. The tour is numbered, and a helpful catalog of works and biographies is available at the front desk on the second floor. There is a special emphasis on regional themes varying from the realistic to the abstract. Check out the figurative polymer sculpture by internationally famous illustrator/artist Bill Nelson. He has a gift for infusing lifelike character into his pieces, many of which appear in the collections of stars such as Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg.
