Our mission is to promote and develop an appreciation of the visual and the performing arts. Artists’ 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 Guitar s
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 teak 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.

The Art of Antone Henriques
Tony Henriques has been drawing since he was very young. Attending college locally, Tony expanded his drawing abilities to sculpture, paint, and design. Today, as a freelance artist, he’s happy to be able to spend much more time on his art than ever before. While Tony has studied many different types of art, both formally and informally, he most enjoys watercolor, pastel, and acrylic.
The Art of Chuck Boucher
Working professionally since 1986, Chuck formed Taylespun Studio when managing retail sales at an art supply store in his hometown. In 2013, he opened his studio at the Narrows Center for the Arts. His work is recognized, respected, and collected across the country. Step into his open studio and see brilliant, expressive color, skillfully applied onto canvas in a variety of sizes.
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.”
Narrows Center for the Arts has studio space available for rent. Studios are accessible and affordable and include heat, air conditioning and Wi-Fi. The Narrows is conveniently located on the Fall River, MA waterfront near major highways. Narrows gives studio artists a unique built-in audience of art and music lovers through its programming.
