The new alliance, which will be celebrated with a weekend reception March 7 through 9, has  The Gallery serving as the new home of the AAC.
In addition to holding annual juried shows, workshops, and monthly meetings, the AAC also plans to hold regular business hours inside  The Gallery so that local creatives, including visual artists, musicians, and writers, can collaborate and network -- possibly over coffee or an e-cigarette, both of which are currently being offered in the gallery's lounge and drink area.
