Common Ground strives to be the center of a vibrant community. Our owners believe that a vibrant community is one that is alive with art.
Our gallery is located in our highly utilized Flatlander Classroom, a space dedicated to connecting the community, facilitating educational opportunities focusing on healthy living, and providing access to local artists. This multi-use space is ideal for integrating the arts into the urban environment and creating partnerships among artists, the community and business. This year, we will be hosting two artist at a time, allotting each artist a locked case that is 8’ long x 44’’ high x 4’’ wide. We always welcome kids and group shows to apply!

"Everything that happens the way it does is supposed to happen.."by Kenny Andrews
Kenny Andrews' Artist Statement:
Art is my own special and unique way of documenting my life journey. Painting is my happy place, and color is the language of my soul. I create artwork that is both an expression of my life and the world around me in a joyous, uplifting way. In a world where so much darkness exists, I choose to be a light of positivity.
Nature and space is my greatest inspiration, and it influences every piece of my art I create. Whether it be the glorious changing of the seasons, a sunset, the ocean, the phases of the moon, the stars at night… the inspiration is endless. We are all creators.

Niche Market by Brianna Lawrence
Brianna Lawrence's Artist Statement:
I started making digital artwork after my third child was born because I could do it with a baby in one hand and there was nothing to clean up. I draw very specific things because it can be hard for print on demand work to be found in a market with so many options available. A botanical print, for example, will be lost amid many, many others, but chinchillas will be found because there are only a handful of other people making it. As a collection, I don’t feel like my artwork tells a viewer much about the subjects I care about, but it does reflect a sort of shrewd and mercenary approach to selling of art at a time when being an artist means caring about things like search engine optimization.
