The Raven Gallery at Bar XIII is currently curated by Alex Seigfried (Nova Nightingale) and features local visual artists.  The gallery caters to alternative, counter-culture, sub-culture, erotic, and non-traditional subject matter.  Work is hung at the beginning of each month and comes down near the end.  The gallery does not take a commission, its purpose is to support and foster alternative arts in the community.
