A note from the Director:Our two-story art gallery building has been closed in order to deal with a variety of structural issues and functional concerns. Given the age of the building (1923), this is not entirely unexpected. All our artwork has been removed by our artists for safekeeping until we can reopen the building. Exact construction plans have not been finalized, but as information becomes available, we will post it on our website and include in our next newsletters. Meanwhile, our Hot Shop and Clay Studio remain open Tuesday - Friday, 9:00-4:00, and Saturdays 9:00 - 2:00. All hot glass blowing and clay classes will be available. In addition, all our children's after-school programs will run as scheduled utilizing both our Coastal Arts Center campus and the Orange Beach Rec Center.Free admission.The Mission of the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach is to enrich the experiences of both our community and our visitors through educational and interactive experiences and the exhibition of fine arts. The Center cherishes its place in the rich history of our area and promotes innovative ideas in the arts all in a warm and welcoming environment. Classes available. Historic bayside grounds perfect for weddings.
