Art is intrinsic to the human psyche. Even as children, human beings feel motivated to create. Art is universal and provides a means of communicating thoughts and feelings that we might otherwise not know how to express. That expression can take place within a myriad of pathways including, but not exclusive to, body language, music, dance and art. Art is a very therapeutic activity. It provides not only an outlet for emotions but also engages the mind and promotes critical thinking. It also captures our stories and serves as a means of documenting history. Finally, and often times most powerfully, it brings people together to share an experience.
We are a team of artists and coffee lovers that want to share our talents and space with you. Our mission is to support and encourage artistic experimentation, expression, growth and collaboration in our community... and fuel it with scrumptious vittles!
