Artist Exhibit - Ginifer Brinkley
Tree by artgin

The Adele Grage Cultural Center welcomes back local artist/muralist, Ginifer Brinkley as our Artist of the Month for December. Ginifer recently began to explore heavier abstract pieces with a focus on canvas, fulfilling the need for self-expression through more contemporary works. As an avid collector of art herself, Ginifer holds firmly the belief that art should be affordable and accessible to all.
The public is welcome to view Ginifer's exhibit on Monday - Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm.
