ArtHound Gallery

The ArtHound Gallery, named with John and Jennifer Churchman’s seven dogs in mind, will spread out across 7,400-square feet of space, making it one of the state’s largest art galleries.  The goal is to create a community arts center drawing on the works of so many good artists in this area.  John and Jennifer are owners of a local farm and authors of the best-selling children’s books series, “Sweet Pea & Friends”.
