Really good local artists. A small museum, but worth the visit. The gift shop has better than average souvenirs of a nautical nature.

There were a lot of pieces of local art for sale and the prices were reasonable. Paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery and even some woven items.

They change out regularly, and there are huge gorgeous pieces as well as small matted prints. Tiny gift shop but well-stocked with a wide range of pricing. Lovely sculpture garden out back, and centrally located to many other attractions.

Rocking chairs on front porch, air conditioned inside, very open gallery; art related gift items along with some other items which I presume are from local artists. They also provide classes.

The art center is very small. It has a nice exhibition and out side a small sculpture garden- beautiful. It is next to the water and the area is very pleasant.
