As a local art teacher I am always drawn to great art spaces and Pacific Art League is one of the best. Their gallery and exhibitions are inspiring. A course I took with my husband with printmaker Tom Killion helped us achieve one of our lifelong dreams - an art studio in the country. We are now neighbors of Tom's in Inverness because of the experience at Pacific Art League - where artistic dreams DO come true!
