Coastal Arts Center grounds

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.
