2 Harris Street
Built in 1994 as a glass blowing studio, the building’s name references its roots. Now the venue produces theater, music, comedy, spoken word, educational workshops and more, providing a safe place to create dangerous work. Work that counteracts the passive, the isolating, the distance between people. Come experience joyful creation, partake in brave exploration, meet the person sitting next to you, share about what you’re seeing, buy them a drink. Our goal is to present relevant performing and visual art that is accessible for diverse audiences; art that connects and inspires us, and incites us to leap across cultural boundaries. The Foundry is a holding tank for raw, funny, challenging, empowering work that changes the lens through which we view each other.
Hotchkiss Mobiles Gallery

The first word spoken when entering Hotchkiss Mobiles Gallery is often "WOW!" This 'Museum for Mobiles' is the gallery and studio of nationally recognized artist Joel Hotchkiss. His pieces—for interior and garden settings—are sold throughout the United States and Europe, most notably at the Guggenheim in New York, the National Gallery in DC and MOMA in San Francisco.

When customers approach Hoffman Pottery, they cannot stop smiling due to the overwhelming whimsy in the gardens! Elaine Hoffman enjoys making a variety of different kinds of pottery. She loves to throw on the potter’s wheel, which she finds wonderfully meditative. She also does hand building with slabs of clay and hand rolled coils - braided and woven to create asymmetrical works and pieces that are askew. Elaine has an appetite for color, and enjoys putting the same color next to different colors and observing how the color changes. Her showroom is a vibrant feast of hues. Venture off the beaten path to Hoffman Pottery.
