Celebration of Life started nine years ago when cemetery staff noticed artists creating art at the cemetery grounds. They thought it would be a great opportunity to open their doors to the public to display their works. The show received such an incredibly positive response that Gallery 1855 was created. The gallery now hosts monthly shows featuring local artists throughout the year. Everyone is invited to be inspired by the art and beautiful grounds.
