In keeping with Sawtooth School’s art education mission, the gallery hosts exhibitions that emphasize some aspect of the schools programming. Our creative and diverse faculty is showcased throughout the year in the Davis Gallery and student work is celebrated with an annual exhibit.
The community is invited to visit the gallery. Gallery walk-throughs, led by Sawtooth staff, are available to local school classes and other interested groups. In addition, the community at large is invited to join Sawtooth School for each exhibition opening and related publicized events. Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public.
The shop showcases artwork from our accomplished faculty and advanced students. New work arrives frequently from our current faculty and with the addition of new instructors. Please visit often, we’re certain you’ll find great gifts created by our local artisans/instructors. Ask us about gift certificates!
Our hours of operation are 9 AM to 7 PM Monday-Friday and 9 AM to 4 PM Saturday. We are closed on Sunday.
