CoArt Gallery ....
Was founded in 1998 as a co-operative format gallery of local (Shenandoah Valley and east to Charlottesville) artists to provide a comfortable, affordable location to showcase their art. We have painters in oil, acrylic and watercolor; print-makers; photographers , collage and assemblage art.
Within the walls of CoArt is the gallery for the nearby Beverley Street Studio School of Art with rotating invitational exhibits. Many of the artists at CoArt have participated in the excellent classes at BSSS.

Each member pays a monthly rental fee for the wall space.
Each member must work two (2) sessions, 3 and 1/2 hours each, every month at the Gallery. These sessions allow the artist to greet the public, make sales, and do other routine maintenance duties.
What percent of a sale goes to the Gallery? CoArt takes a 20% commission on artworks sold.
What is the "Featured Artist"? Each month a different artist has the opportunity to display at the front wall of the Gallery, with excellent visibility from the sidewalk. This wall space is 20 feet length, and an artist may display a complete body of work. Extra publicity is provided. The featured artist can have a opening reception and invite his/her own guests.
