A good mixture of art from local artists, most of which is for sale. Able to view most of the art in about half an hour. Great gift shop with a variety of goods among them jewelry, scarves and various art works. The admission was free and was worth our hour visit.

Of course, the art is mostly sea fare, but it is well done. I found a friend of mine's photo displayed there that had been sold before the opening. There is a wide variety of styles and mediums displayed for a person's perusal.

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.
