BayCoast Bank Gallery at the Narrows Center
Thursday – Saturday, Noon – 5:00 p.m.
The sight of the BayCoast Gallery at the Narrows Center greets visitors when entering the third floor of the Narrows Center for the Arts. Visitors are pleasantly surprised to find such a wonderful treasure hidden inside a gorgeous old textile mill.
The Narrows Center has two visual art galleries. Visitors enter through the 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.
