Very nice sandwich stop with a fabulous view of the Corpus Christ waterfront and Yacht Club. Fresh ingredients, yummy homemade soups, and awesome desserts.

There is so much interesting local art in this beautiful old building. More than just painting - textiles, collages, etc. They also have a very cool gift shop so you can pick up a better than average souvenir of your visit to Rockport.

Rockport is an artists colony and this is the place to stop by and see what is happening. Week-ends, usually Fridays, they have an art installation, well worth going to.

Rockport is so lucky to have such a first class gallery and talented local artists. It is located near the aquarium and the Bay Resource Center at the harbor/marina near downtown.

If you are poking around the marina area, down by the Bay Resource Center and Aquarium, you might as well poke your head into the cool (literally cool air conditioned) Art Center. It's definitely worth checking out all the local talented artists we have in Rockport. It's free! Before or after, you can wander around the little Sculpture Garden attached.

This is a small sea side community art center with heart for the arts. We loved our visit. The displays were well organized and comfortable to spend time enjoying. The staff was knowledgeable and also helped direct us to other sights in the area.

The hours the museum was open was disappointing for my schedule. But the quick 30 minute visit was excellent. They were switching out exhibits, but let me roam around anyway. I actually met and talked with the photographer/artist. And the presentation was so breathtaking it brought tears to my eyes. It was called Havana and beyond. Especially loved the Tobacco... More
