A fabulous and unique gallery and artist co-op of 25+ local Florence artists. This co-op/gallery is so great... so many different kinds of media, all art is display and hung with such class and professionalism. This co-op is a vibrant art movement on the Oregon coast. You won't want to miss this place. Great souvenirs, gifts, cards, and terrific & affordable art creations by such a friendly bunch of people.

I have a number of pieces from this gallery. It is a cooperative of local artists and a meeting place for friends. Love it.
