Recently moved by owner Clyde Beswick from the Historic Core to this former soap-factory just south of the Arts District proper, the large, clean, inviting space allows plenty of room for exhibits such as the modern spiritual artist Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia and the collage-like style of Timothy Nolan.
