Visual Arts

The visual arts, created by our talented artists, ranging from painting to wood carving are often displayed in our local businesses, public spaces, galleries and special events throughout the Town.


Music of all genres and styles is being composed, recorded and performed throughout the community by gifted musicians and songwriters of all ages and backgrounds.

Ellena's Café and The Old Church Theatre host the popular Starstop Concert Series. Audiences can gather and enjoy musical guests from all over the globe as well as our own gifted musicians as they perform in a welcoming setting.
