We opened Miya Gallery in the fall of 2004 in a temporary location where we stayed for a year waiting for our current location to be available. It was a labor of love for sure. Miya started out representing about 40 artists, grew to represent over 80 artists. Then a couple of years ago we decided to downsize, add studio space and concentrate on fewer artists. We now represent 30 or 40 artists. Our jewelry collection has grown though and we now house the jewelry studios of four local artists.
