Welcome to the Hilltop Gallery website
Hilltop Gallery is owned, supported and maintained by members of The Patrons of the Arts, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization. The gallery is not owned by any individual or group other than the members! The members elect the Board of Directors who act as stewards of the gallery for the general membership in the conduct of business.

The Gallery year begins September 1 and runs through May 31. One new exhibit opens each month. These showcase solo exhibits, group exhibits or themed exhibits and include two special shows: the Annual Members Show in October and the Judged Show in May. Hilltop Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. during the Gallery year. Monday through Friday, Noon to 4 p.m. in the off season.

An Walk-In Studio setting is held during gallery hours.

Classes for children are held on Saturdays during the Gallery season (September through May). One class will focus on Arts and Crafts and another will focus on various curricula and media. Details are still being developed and will be announced on the website. Pre-registration will be required for each course.
