The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They are always willing to discuss the current exhibit. The exhibits change frequently and consist of a lot of local artists. The gift shop has numerous items from local artists, and they take credit cards. Near Central Park and Corvallis Public library and only a few blocks from downtown. Good place to visit.

Staff is genuinely pleasant, exhibits are generally interesting with local creativity on display, and it's only a block west of the downtown core -- at the south edge of Central Park.

Staff and volunteers are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. It always has interesting art in its gallery, that changes frequently. The Art Center is free, but they do have a donation jar. They also have a gift shop, that has a lot of items from local artists, at reasonable prices. Close to downtown. A must on your visit to Corvallis.

This small arts centre in a former church is a delightful place to visit. An outstanding exhibition of fabulous quilts was on display when we were there and well as a good selection of well made and attractive craft items for sale in the gift shop. The attendant was very friendly and helpful. The setting of the wooden church is... More

Located inside a restored church, this was a quick but interesting stop. Very fascinating art exhibits and the gift shop featured some eclectic items. Glad we stopped by. And it was near Central Park with some unique statues.

The Arts Center is located in a re-purposed, fairly old church in Corvallis' downtown. Easy to walk to, easy to enjoy its exhibits in the vaulted confines of its restored space. It's intimate yet still large enough to provide personal space among the other visitors (unless it's hosting a reception, then it's really more intimate!). The Arts Center is one... More

The facility is small and the employees a bit aloof. (Volunteers are eager!) They occasionally have nice exhibits. It appears they are attempting to be a big city center in a small town location.
