The gallery space at the Jamestown Arts Center has become one of the most exciting places to experience art and design in southern Rhode Island. Because of its large size and high ceiling height, the space is unique and lends itself to a variety of exhibits in both two and three dimensions as well as installations. Please contact Exhibitions Director Karen Conway at karen@jamestownartcenter.org for questions related to the gallery.
