One of a Kind (OOAK) Art Gallery was founded in 2010 in the nostalgic Micaville Country Store building. Built as the company store for the Vulcan Mine Company in 1922, the 2200 square foot gallery retains many original characteristics. In the 1930s, the building became Robinson’s General Merchandise and sold everything from dry goods and shoes to prepared sandwiches and ice cream. The loft was dedicated to blue jeans, which were sewn in the Taylor Togs factory, just to the east on the Micaville Loop.
OOAK represents over 150 local artists and craftspeople, most of whom live and create within 30 miles of the gallery. Shelves that held dry goods a century ago now hold the work of more than 35 potters. Jewelry offered for sale is made from items including simple beads, leather, hand-forged sterling silver, and locally mined gems. Other items offered include textiles, paintings, prints, woodwork, metal yard art, glass, and candles.
Visitors to OOAK Art Gallery will also find an annex space once used for feed and seed now used as a visitor center. The Saturday Morning Music Jams bring in musicians and listeners alike. Thursday night concerts are also offered April through October.
Hours: Monday-Saturday 10 am-5 pm, April-December.
Thursday-Saturday 10 am-4 pm, mid-January-March.
Open Sundays in October and December from 12 – 5pm.
