What began as the dream of a small group of craftspeople in 1975 continues today in a very personal and continually changing environment. The history of Hands is as varied and interesting as the artists who have come and gone over the years. Dozens of artisans have explored the business opportunities Hands has given their work, donating time and ideas to the growth and success of the gallery. Hands Gallery has provided a place for support and sharing between artists, creating not only a partnership in developing a business, but the basis for many long term friendships. The variety of work and personalities have always made Hands Gallery an interesting and rich experience for members as well as customers.
