Narrows Art Community

Music That Matters Art that inspires

Our mission is to promote and develop an appreciation of the visual and the performing arts. Artist studios are one component of our ever-growing and successful cultural arts center.

Over the years several artists have used studio workspace at the Narrows Center to create their artwork in the company of like-minded artists. An open studio door is a welcome invitation to all the arts enthusiasts who attend live performances and/or visit Narrows Gallery exhibitions.

 

Current Studio Artists: 


Anderson Acoustic Guitars 
Bill Anderson, Luthier

Bill Anderson, a professional oboist and luthier, builds on spec, but is also happy to build custom guitars, which gives customers the opportunity to tweak their details and choose their body wood. He’s excited about every guitar that he builds, and is constantly seeking new ways to improve the process and the results, while maintaining a hand-built commitment. All major components are built by Bill and by hand, without using CNC.

Studio Incognito
The Art of Vania Noverca Viveiros

“Art is an expression of oneself and should always be shared with others.”

“As an artist, one is often asked to provide a Biography and an Artist Statement when invited to a Gallery or Show. I truly do understand the intent; but I must admit that I personally feel that in order to know an artist, one must learn who we are through our reflections, and look beyond our shadows! Who, what, when and why, how are we inspired; each and every creation is a mere reflection of all these things collectively.”
