Nice stop if you are exploring downtown Rockport. Be sure to call ahead to make sure they are open. Very nice exhibits from local artists. You can learn lots about the area from the people here.

The Rockport Art Center would be a credit in a city 10 times it's size but is unbelievable in a city of 7,000+ people! Located directly on Aransas Bay in a historic building it's superb. The staff is outstanding and again would not be expected in a city this size. The gallery features many local artists as well as artists... More

Laid out with a feeling of spaciousness. Ceramic pieces and artwork are appealing. Nice little gift shop. A very pleasant stop.

We are not art gallery fans usually. The cold dreary day pushed us to seek shelter in this building and it turned out to be a lovely find. We browsed through racks of art prints by local artists and my husband and I each found one print that spoke to our hearts! There were many interesting renderings of artistic visions.... More

Friendly, upscale art venue with display space, classroom, pottery studio & gift shop. Sign up for a half-day workshop or month-long class. Diverse. Great diversion for a month of crappy weather. Fee for workshops but entry into the museum is free.

Nice small gallery with a delightful gift shop. In addition to major exhibits, they exhibit local artists' work that changes monthly. Definitely worth a stop.
