The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will hold “Open Gallery” hours every Friday, from 2 to 4 p.m., beginning March 4.
The Center frequently has art shows on display throughout the month, but it is not open except during specific events. Local artist and former board member Peggy Biskar developed the Open Gallery idea.
“It was a shame that people didn’t know when they could get in to see our latest shows, so we created a special time each week,” she said.
Hoffman Center volunteers will be on hand during Open Gallery hours to greet the public, discuss the artworks, and help with sales if someone is interested in purchasing one or more pieces.
