It used to be a United Methodist Church, which was then sold in 1970 and re-named the St.James Baptist Church, had fallen into disrepair by the late 2000s, and it took Bryan Seay to restore the church to its original state, preserving it all.
It is now one of the city's premier artists' cooperatives and event venues, featuring interesting exhibits and presentation by emerging artists from all over the nation. This is one of the favorite places for album release parties, weddings, and presentations.
Studios, shared and separate, are available for rent. Past exhibitions include group photography and multidisciplinary shows of multimedia, found materials, cyanotype, etching, relief, screenprinting, book arts, etc.
