A wonderful nonprofit gallery showcasing contemporary fine art photography. The center has three spacious rooms, the largest of which displays rotating juried exhibitions featuring top photographic talent from around the world. The other two galleries exhibit solo and group shows. The staff is outstanding; and although the artwork is for sale, there is no pressure to buy.

This wonderful photography in Fort Collins is continually filled with exciting, cutting edge art. A juried show with a unique them in addition to a solo show changes often.

I was hypnotized by the beautiful art and spell bound by the friendly smiles of the amazing staff. Despite the art from famous artists you'll find on the walls, and the prolific and knowledgeable director, Hamidah Glasgow, there is an overwhelming lack of pretentiousness and heart warm welcomes all around as you enter the building. You can any question you... More

The best thing about this gallery is it's appreciation of a range of photography that does not ignore traditional styles. I'm always put off when a gallery insists on trends alone and imply that innovation is the most important criteria. Here the curatorial mix is always well balanced. Cutting edge material alongside good solid traditional works play well off each... More

The gallery is a little hard to find but offers excellent photography in a variety of styles. There was a class going on while we were there, but the staff made sure we could see the exhibits. The director encourages all types of photography and stimulates creativity in photographers and viewers.

A local treasure that has maintained a level of quality over many years of themed juried and curated solo shows. Submissions from international artists always provide a rich and varied group of images. And artist/curator talks are a regular feature on opening nights. As a local artist it's the only venue I can truly recommend without reservation.

A rotating series of photographs. Always intriguing and thought provoking. It is really difficult to generalize. I stop by for every First Friday Artwalk. Very enjoyable.
