Gallery5 is an award-winning, community-motivated visual and performing art center that has become a premier arts venue for local and regional audiences. Through extensive collaboration with cultural, educational, environmental and social organizations, Gallery5 continues to broaden demographics by encouraging a more diverse, inclusive, and inspired region of art supporters.

Gallery5 showcases a multitude of unconventional and progressive performance art series and is host to weekly visiting arts groups. These performances consist of local and nationally known artists in areas of improvisation comedy, spoken word, film, live music, contemporary dance and theater. Gallery5 has been a catalyst for many new creative initiatives and has served as a launching pad for countless emerging performance artists. We exist to provide our community with a space to share their innovations and to engage others.
