A neat place to visit while in Newport, a lovely selection of local artists work, along with a large varity of "What to get for someone" special gift. The center as well sells tickets to local events, plays, VSO, etc..etc.. Most capable and helpful staff.

Art co-ops are the best place to shop.... High quality work locally made. And staffed by one of artists. The co-op had a wide variety of work from wood to glass to textiles... All at fair prices.

This is a great space but I was underwhelmed by the art and the products for sale. I can imagine that with a different set of artists, this would be a fun place to go to. I hope they curate some better art because it...More
