Art & Soul
Art & Soul was a dream come true for me - though I didn't realize it was something I was searching for until it happened! It’s funny how the stars align and things simply fall into place. We’ve had 15 wonderful, happy and very rewarding years at Art & Soul… but as the saying goes, all good things come to an end. We’ll be closing the gallery at the end of the 2021 season. Bittersweet… but I’m looking forward to operating my business full time from my home studio next year. I’m hoping to finally find time to do all those paintings on my “To Paint” list (not to mention, spend more time with my family!).
Art & Soul was established in 2005. This little gallery is housed within the Hotel de Ville and nestled below the bluffs along Highway 35 in historic Alma, WI. Sarah Gailey, has mission-based products from all over the world and also creates beautiful handcrafted jewelry. Every painting, every notecard, every scarf, every piece of jewelry - everything that Art & Soul sells, has a percentage donated somewhere – either locally or internationally. Art & Soul’s motto: "Every Purchase Impacts A Life"
Hotel de Ville - Fire & Ice
Located in the heart of Main Street Alma, Wisconsin, the Hotel de Ville provides a great get-away for anyone with an appreciation for the history and flavor of an authentic river and railroad town. Fully restored historic buildings with old world charm (while providing modern day amenities) make up the Hotel de Ville.

Plum City, WI
Donates 10-25% to several charities with each sale
Every time I look into – and beyond my little fence lined courtyard, I find inspiration for a new drawing or painting. There are birds singing their sweet little songs, bees buzzing around the flowers and the apple trees – and all kinds of critters finding sanctuary at our old retired dairy farm. Inspiration... I don’t have far to look!
