The story of a place is told most eloquently through its art. Our goal at The Inn is to provide great hospitality and that requires great storytelling. With that in mind, we have layered local art and artists throughout The Inn from the very beginning. For us, art is not an afterthought or a decoration but a foundation and it has always been a fundamental part of our vision. You will find local art woven into the fabric and spirit of this place. We hope it pleases you, inspires you, makes you smile and becomes part of your personal story and experience at The Inn.
The Inn at Harbor Shores features a rotation of featured artists in it's gallery located on the second floor. Each featured artist or group of artists is celebrated for their displayed works with an exhibit opening, open to all public, with complimentary wine and snacks. Exhibits serve as an opportunity to visit with the artist and learn about his or her process as well as browse and purchase the artwork, a beautiful and exciting investment. Featured artists have included Lynne Tan, Mary Brodbeck, Ladislav Hanka, Laura Kraklau, Susan Henshaw and more.
