This place has changed hands a lot, even for Benson. At least it is easy to get to and you can be in and out of this "store" in a few minutes. It IS a store, everything is for sale.

I have never passed by on the sidewalk without having to stop and look at something interesting or intriguing in the window. It never fails to make my day just a little better

Doug, his wife and partner have truly excellent art. Hard to tell if his paintings are photographs. Very realistic. All the murals in town were done by Doug. No pressure when you visit their gallery. Doug is in high demand as a mural artist nationwide.
