    This place looks amazing! I’ve been driving by this place everyday, but it is always closed. I really want to see what it looks like on the inside and help out any way I can.

    Taylor,
    Spirals Gallery is also on Facebook. Check out the hours there. I am sure the owner would love to meet you. She is going to have an art festival during Spyderfest for April 27th to April 29.
