Admission to the center is free with summer hours being 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays.

George Jerkovich is a noted regional photographer. He regularly participates in area exhibits, and his work is represented in many corporate and private collections.
The exhibit features nine large-format photographs printed on metal. Each piece showcases automotive details of a different customized car.
Jerkovich said color and form are the most important aspects of his work and this exhibit includes a large spectrum of warm colors, something he favors over cool colors, with the metal substrate making them “glossy, bright and colorful.”
Normally a landscape photographer, George admits that he is “not a car guy” but that he does admire the color, form, and craft of restored cars. In his photography, the process is just as important to him as the final image.
