Ancillary Galleries

POAC maintains gallery exhibits in seven ancillary galleries in Sandpoint, Ponderay, Dover, and Sagle.  These venues allow people who would not typically seek out arts experiences to experience art in the places that they frequent in daily life.  With varying hours and locations, these venues are often visited by local residents as well as tourists.  They provide excellent opportunities for artists with medium-to-large bodies of work to display solo shows.  Monarch Mountain Coffee, Mountain West Bank, and P1FCU are all on four months rotations.  Dover City Hall, Edwards Jones, Farm Bureau, and Northern Lights feature Artists in Residence and are rotated once a year.
