Rob Ralph and his partners Craig Mannhalter and Ben Sparrow were looking for a place to show and sell their sought-after window cabinets. Art galleries seemed a likely place, but paying commissions didn't appeal.

"We decided we'd rather pay our own rent," Ralph said.

And Local Works was born.

Located in The Place on Elm Street between Cascade and Main avenues, the gallery is home to the window cabinets and a whole lot more - all work created by Sisters Country artists.

"The pivot point is the cabinets," Ralph noted. "We've done well with the cabinets since the day we opened."

But there's also photography by Lynn Woodward and Gary Miller, woodcarvings by Skip Armstrong, paintings and leatherwork by Dyrk Godby, native flutes and stained glass. Laura Curtis and Mike Biggers have their CDs on sale there.

The idea was to create a space where local artists and craftsmen could put their work in front of the public at affordable rates, all in an effort to enhance Sisters' growing reputation as a creative community.

Local Works is located at 151 S. Elm St. For more information call 541-306-7344.
