Karl and a business partner, along with lots of enthusiastic advisors, volunteers, and investors, have opened a large multi-faceted fine art gallery and arts center in the rapidly revitalizing small town of Millheim, Pennsylvania. Millheim is located a half hour drive east of State College and the main campus of the Pennsylvania State University. The gallery opened in April of 2011 and features the work of many other fine artists and craftsmen as well as many pieces by Karl. For more information see http://greendrakeart.com .
