Founded in 2005 as the Vault Gallery and transitioned into BASE Gallery in 2007, the gallery as a whole has showcased over 60 artist and 90+ art shows. The gallery also has it's very own retail boutique called Grey Matter, which has over 15 artist at one time showcasing glassware, jewelry, prints, and ceramics at any given time.
This gallery supports all forms of artistic expression that can make a difference in what matters most, LIFE. The gallery has evolved from just showing work on its walls to curating for local business, such as ZIMMER Real Estate Company and creating an art development program BASED on the knowledge and experience. A student will learn the basic foundation of art and learn how to harness their perspectives into something tangible and unique to the artist experience.
