6Pence also features work by local artists in our restaurant space.  Artwork is usually hung on a monthly basis, and 6Pence, along with the artist, hosts an opening or closing reception that takes place after our regular store hours.  Refreshments are served, and the space is open to the public.  We encourage artists who are interested in exhibiting and selling their work in our space to e-mail us with inquiries using the 6Pence section of our Contact page.
