View Video In January 2021, with the shut down in place due to COVID-19 I began going through my extensive archives of film negatives and slides that were shot between the years 1973 through 1987. I decided to scan the images and see what I had, if memory serves me well I thought I might have a few good photos. Slowly the memories of many fantastic places and people were flooding my mind and each day had new surprises as I worked through the stacks of film. I was honored to be contacted by the Narrows with a request to include my music photographs for a virtual gallery. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I have enjoyed looking back in time.￼￼￼ — Rick Couto Click on the above button to view the video.

BayCoast Bank Gallery at the Narrows Center
Thursday – Saturday, Noon – 5:00 p.m.
The Narrows Center has two visual art galleries. Visitors enter through the Narrows’ main Gallery, a space with an impressive 210 linear feet of exhibition walls in an elegant architectural design. Morphing several times throughout the year, the BayCoast Bank Gallery at the Narrows Center presents artwork of every medium. The Narrows Café Gallery occupies a linear wall facing Battleship Cove at the opposite end of the venue. This space is ideal for sequential unfolding of a theme and single artist shows. Having two galleries affords visitors and artists multiple opportunities to view and exhibit fine art.
The Narrows presents museum quality nationally touring exhibitions in addition to the artwork of student, local, national and international artists. “The Art of the Brick,” “Pulp Function,” “Duende: The Art of Anthony Quinn,” “Jerry Garcia Art Tour” “Petroleum Paradox: For Better or for Worse?” and “The Artwork of Richie Havens” are examples of extraordinary past touring exhibitions we’ve hosted. Docent led tours and workshops for children are integral to our visual arts programming. Since arts related activities are cost prohibitive to many, the Narrows provides free admission to the gallery during regular gallery hours. In doing so, the Narrows affords everyone a no-cost opportunity to view spectacular artwork. Concert-goers are also welcome to view the artwork on performance nights.
