Hanson Gallery

Craig has often said that creating art is how he breathes. Emotion can be seen and felt in all of his pieces, whether a person, a flower, an animal, a city scene, a beautiful landscape, or even his abstracts.

One Second in Florence offers a unique perspective. Craig wanted to create a collection that would go beyond the architecture of the old world city and truly capture the feel of Firenze. When an old World War II movie, “Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo”, flooded his mind he realized that was it… it was all about time… capturing time. He set his camera to one second exposure and One Second in Florence was born.

Colors of Inclusion: An LGBTQ+ Collective Show May 16 – June 23

If you are an artist with us, you are invited to have an artist spotlight show. Spotlights are typically a month long, but they can be adjusted to fit your schedule. These are an opportunity to be highlighted in our community and an added bonus for being an artist in the gift shop, Hanson Gallery, or Art Sail. Contact Jessi at for more information about having your own spotlight.
