Attached to the Old Mission Tavern, is an art gallery featuring the work of over 75 artists. The Bella Galleria is a gallery of fine art showcasing the original pieces from local and regional artists working in many media and art forms. Themes and revolving exhibits keep interest alive for visitors all year long. The 1500 sq. ft. gallery and banquet hall has adjoined the restaurant since its opening in 1994.
Next door to the gallery and the restaurant is the sculpture studio of Verna Bartnick, the owner of the Tavern and Bella Galleria. Verna is one of the area's most widely known and respected artists and her work serves as a focus for the gallery and its association of participating artists.
The Bella Galleria has received many first time and frequent visitors to sit back in awe. The large display of original artwork on display as you enter the Old Mission Tavern beckons visitors into the gallery, and individuals are always impressed by the collections.
All of these pieces are one of a kind. Many of our artists work full time to create these masterpieces...their art is their work. And it will enrich your life with every visit.
