Artists represent a swath of mediums, styles, and influences

bringing their unique inspirations to our local community to enjoy.


A ten-foot gathering table makes space for classes and intimate conversation. Or easy sharing of art supplies while crafting and creating together.


All the work in the Gallery is 100% local, meaning your money goes right to artists creating in and across the Valley! 



1. Rent space monthly  at $20 per linear foot    

      (Side to side -2.5' Minimum)

2. Sell your work and keep 80%. 

3. The other 20% of your sales goes back into the gallery for events, marketing you as an artist and other artist-forward opportunities.

Femme Locale

Curated by Christine Texiera and Alexia Cota


Femme Locale a group juried exhibition of artwork by trans women, cis women, intersex, genderqueer, genderfluid, and non-binary people within 39 miles of Amherst. Curated by Christine Texiera and Alexia Cota, this exhibition is inspired by and in solidarity with the Thrive Together Network Initiative, TAKING. UP. SPACE.

About Thrive Together Network: The Thrive Together Network was created with a shared vision and belief that women in the arts need each other and thriving as an artist means finding your people.

Founders, Kaylan and Jamie, met as they were each running their own separate artist communities. On their website they state: "We believe in the power of artists coming together in community. We believe in the work of empowering women to take up more space, find their artistic voice, and grow in relationships with others and with themselves. We are motivated, deep down, to do the work of providing support and nourishment to women artists."

Exhibit runs from Saturday, May 4, through Saturday, June 29.

Reception: Friday, May 10, from 5-7pm.

The Mill District Local Art Gallery is donating space and sales commission to support this cause.
