Art Gallery

Featuring Emerging Local Artists All Year Long!

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!

Erica Rae Stark's Artist Statement:

Though I enjoy experimenting with many different materials, I am particularly drawn to the art of relief printmaking. For me, the entire process is very meditative and I feel at peace when I am drawing, carving, and printing my designs. My inspiration comes from the simple things in life that bring people joy and comfort. I am also interested in how these things come to be, whether they are straight from the earth, man-made, or a little of both. My designs for my prints tend to be simple and sharp. I chose the word 'stark' to describe them for this reason, but also because it happens to be my last name.
