The mission of the Kelly Fitzpatrick Memorial Gallery is to engage, inspire and educate artists and the public at large by promoting local and regional visual arts through the collection, recognition, documentation, and the publication of relevant works of American art. The gallery exhibitions are designed to not only include original artwork but also the story behind the artist and their work. Exhibitions are also designed to promote local tourism and inspire creative industry. Exhibitions will include a Permanent Collection, which is designed for the enrichment of present and future generations, as well as rotating exhibits.
