About
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.

We enjoyed our visit to this gallery. It is a co-op gallery and represents a wide variety of artists and objects of art. The artist at the front desk was very friendly and easily engaged in conversation. It's a bit high priced, as most galleries can be, but a wide selection of splendid items is available.

This is the 2nd time I have been here in 5 years, last time they were setting up for a show the older guy looked at us like we could never afford anything therefore ignored us. This time no greeting when we walked in, same older guy he started a conversation with a local about how he teaches once a month and she should consider taking a class. Next person walks in no greeting for them either. Unfriendly store never asked us if we needed help or volunteered anything about the artists. I will bypass this gallery next time I am in Florence. To the guy that is always there, just because I am wearing a beach coat without a fancy label doesn't mean I can't afford something in your shop!

My husband always stop in to Backstreet Gallery (starting when it used to actually be on a back street - much more convenient now!) whenever we visit Florence. And we've bought some wonderful things there - earrings made from vintage Ukrainian watches, hand bound books filled with Zentangle art and more. Sometimes we find things we want, sometimes we don't, but we always enjoy seeing what the talented artists of the Florence area are up to.

This is a wonderful little place to go for anyone with any sense of artistic appreciation. Local artists share space by renting small corners/display surfaces to display their work - so as a result you get a refreshing, eclectic mix of creativity - from sketches and watercolor paintings to quality photography and jewelry, you can spend a sold 20-30 minutes in here and not even know it. Staff is friendly, very engaging and helpful (if but a bit obstrusive at times), and it's conveniently located in the heart of Old Town Florence, near dining and other shops.

Thoroughly enjoy the paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and local art from area artists! Beautiful to walk through Backstreet Gallery periodically, even if you don't want to purchase anything..

This is a great artist co-op with many very talented members. The collections are always changing, so it is well worth visiting frequently.

There really should be an entry for Old Town in general, since wandering around and in the shops along the river is a nice way to spend an hour or more. 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 quality was reasonably good. Lots of pieces reflected local sites, making them nice purchases to remember your trip. Since it's a co-op, an artist is onsite to provide insights into the works. Definitely worth a stop.
