CCAL, in conjunction with the Town of Chapin, is proud to announce the grand opening of "The Featured Artist Gallery". The gallery is located in the Community Room in the Chapin Town Hall at 157 NW Columbia Avenue. It will host the artwork of one of Crooked Creek Art League's finest artists on a two month rotation. The Town is a big supporter of the arts in Chapin and we are thrilled to be working with them to showcase more art in town.
