Each month Shades hosts a new artist. Throughout the shop you can find their artwork hanging on the wall. We support our local artists by providing a place to show and sell anything from clocks, oil on canvas, photography, abstracts, ceramics, and blown glass to pottery. All you have to do is buy the work you want at the register and it’s yours to take home!
(If you’re interested in showing your art, please contact Melinda through Facebook or by using the contact form below)

Every Saturday night at shades we feature a live performance from Gwen’s Kids, a gypsy jazz band that includes Gwen Ransom singing, David Horne at piano, Ken Ackley at guitar, and Glenn Godsey on drums, from 7PM to 9PM.
We also feature many other live performances throughout the year from many other bands. If you’d like to know of any upcoming shows just check out our Facebook page or call and ask a barista about upcoming live music.
