The BayCoast Bank Gallery at the Narrows Center

Thursday – Saturday, Noon – 5:00 p.m.

Attendees to performances at the Narrows Center for the Arts may know the third floor is home to the 430-seat performance space. What many do not realize until entering, is that the third floor is also home to two art galleries. The BayCoast Gallery greets visitors when exiting either the elevator or stairs. Visitors are pleasantly surprised to find wonderful treasures hidden inside the old, restored textile mill.

Visitors enter through the the BayCoast Bank Gallery, our main gallery, a space with an impressive 210 linear feet of exhibition walls, in an elegant, well-lit architectural style. This gallery presents artwork of every medium and exhibits change throughout the year, keeping visits fresh and exciting. The smaller 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.

Exhibits range from museum quality nationally touring exhibitions, artwork of students, as well as 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 have hosted. Docent led tours and workshops for children are integral to the Narrows Center visual arts programming. Online exhibits are also available for viewing at home to broaden our reach.
