ART AND COFFEE

Welcome to Art & Coffee

Art & Coffee is the newest addition to the Art factory. In March of 2021 we changed our office flow and opened a full-service coffee shop at the front of the house. Our goal was to create a safe and comfortable place for friends and neighbors to get together, a place to work and gather. This change filled our hearts with joy because it helps our community come together better than ever before.  

Our coffee shop features a variety of hot and cold beverages, caffeinated, decaf, lotus, and kids specials - including seasonal Dye-Free Slushies. We have a variety of tasty treats, breakfast sandwiches, specialty chocolates, and more! Gluten-free, vegan-free, and dairy-free options are available. We are proud to serve our coffee with milk from Richlands Dairy Farm. We also carry their chocolate & regular milk as well as pints of their delicious Ice Cream.

Art & Coffee Shop Hours:  

Weekdays 7:00 am - 6:00pm  

Saturday: 8:00am-6:00pm  

Sunday: 8:00am-6:00pm

Opening the Cafe also let us expand to offer a gallery for local artists to display their art, open mic night, open studio and of course our play space where kids 5 and under can play while you enjoy your coffee.

ARTIST GALLERY

Our coffee shop addition also brought the opportunity of creating a gallery wall that helps us feature local artists of all ages, and showcase the wonderful local talent that already exists in our area. You may notice that our display is constantly changing and many of the items on the wall are often offered for sale.

We are excited to display local artists in our coffee shop gallery, as well as host juried exhibitions.

CURRENTLY ON DISPLAY

This month's featured artists is our very own, Tal Thompson, owner of the Art Factory.
 
"I installed my very first painting show on our gallery wall. Its been a long time in the making (years) and I just didn't know it.. My mom suffered from a tragic brain injury that left her crippled for 11 years before she passed away in November 2021.
I painted this series while grieving her loss. This collection created through the years, really helped me process her loss and understand the forever void in my heart.
 
I owe a big thank you to Karen Suderman, our gallery director, for pushing me to share my art with the world. It was my own personal therapy for too long. THANK YOU! My heart feels so full when I see it all together on the wall. I hope you get to stop by and enjoy it too." - Tal
 
Stop by the Cafe through the end of January to see Tal's beautiful art on display.
