A fabulous and unique gallery and artist co-op of 25+ local Florence artists. This co-op/gallery is so great... so many different kinds of media, all art is display and hung with such class and professionalism. This co-op is a vibrant art movement on the Oregon coast. You won't want to miss this place. Great souvenirs, gifts, cards, and terrific & affordable art creations by such a friendly bunch of people.

The Backwater Gallery was just one of the places my wife and I visited, but it was probably the best. There was a nice mixture of mediums, and the... More

This was a hidden gem in Florence. Beautiful and unique original art pieces, plus the artists staff the store. Really enjoyed this gallery.

This truly local gallery actually has the artists listed on the wall and a short bio. Some nice work in all mediums and in a crowded market it's nice to know the art is truly representative of the area

Stopped in for a quick peek after our lunch at Mos and boy were we in for a treat! Found a lot of unique items. This gallery has everything from glass work to photography under its roof. Definitely worth a look around!

I have a number of pieces from this gallery. It is a cooperative of local artists and a meeting place for friends. Love it.

Whenever I am in an "artsy" community, I like to go to the local artists co-op. You can always find one-of-a kind items and experience some amazing talent. This gallery was no exception. Wonderful, varied selection of affordable art. They not only featured talented artists but displayed it all artistically. I was totally taken with the watercolors on canvas by... More

We have to say what we found in Backstreet Gallery was better than most artist co-ops. You can find paintings, ceramics carvings and jewelry. One artist had a very unique line of jewelry made out of antique watch parts. And of course my wife found one she loves. Saturday is a wine tasting tour through town and one stop is... More
