“It is quite an honor for Alpine Arts Center to be nominated and in the running for Best Art Gallery,” said Lauren Merrill, owner and founder. “We are proud of the fact that not only are we a gallery that showcases local artists’ work, but we also provide a hands-on experience for aspiring artist of all ages at all stages.”

Alpine Arts Center offers programs from toddlers who finger paint to moms who might need a night out with the popular “Cocktails and Canvas” program, where Merrill guides the painting process but each canvas is as unique as the artist.

This art gallery sells custom pieces — knitted hats, cards, woodworking pieces, colorful canvases and jewelry — that make for specials, one-of-a-kind gifts.
