Natalie Gates-Voga is the manager of the Blue House Too gallery.  “The Visual Arts of Prosper is an organization that brings artists together so they can show their art and support each other,” Gates-Voga said.  “This is their first opportunity to show the community their art.” 

“This is a big open space so people are able come through, keep socially distant, and enjoy the art,” Gates-Voga said.  “I like that there is a little bit of everything here.  There are so many different styles and it is a great way to see a variety of art.  There is a diversity of mediums and approaches, which is a great introduction to art.  There is something for everyone.  There are landscapes and abstracts, mixed media, sculptures.”
