Through diligence, vision and determination, it is being restored. At The Lost Pearl we feel an affinity for this unique creature. In the past, influenced by industry, our way of life as artisans was put aside or forgotten. It is our intention this way of life be restored and found thriving at The Lost Pearl Art Gallery.

Every other month to six weeks the Pearl changes her exhibitions. On an alternating schedule we will have a one person show or a themed show. With themed shows we advertise a call for entries to area and regional artists through our email membership, social media and sometimes regional publications.
