It is the mission of Backroads Gallery & Sculpture Garden, to show work by artists that already maintain an art practice, with a portolfio, and active studio.  They may be  at any stage in their artistic career.  Some may be at the emerging stage, with solid, art practices, or showing internationally, or may be teaching at various institutions. 

Our goal is to encourage creativity, and community participation  through annual invitational shows, and gala summer events.  Events may include art openings, open gallery and gardens (during gallery hours, Thursday through Saturday, noon to 5)  for sketching, meditating, or simply spending time with the works. Additional events may include art discussions, for participating artists, about their influences and process, and group sketching in the gardens.
