For almost 40 years, Spring Street Gallery has successfully operated in an abandoned horse barn that was brought back to life by community members who wanted to contribute to improving the economy on Block Island. Eventually a group of artists started a cooperative gallery. These artists are a diverse group who create beautiful and unusual works of art that range from paintings and photographs to ceramics and jewelry.

The gallery is staffed by artist members, which provides a knowledgeable and personalized shopping experience in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Besides being a hub for local art and the islands only art cooperative, we have some consignment artists, host opening receptions and art shows for both guest artists and our members (check out our calendar page for more info!), offer occasional art classes, film showings, lecture and discussion series (year-round) and offer studio space to local artists in the off season once the gallery closes.
