It is part of a growing trend, joining local galleries such as As if Studios, which is now in its third year. The county has more working artists than almost anywhere else in the state.
The Art Works Gallery is scheduled to open in mid-May. It will be located on 113 Mill Street in a 2,000 square-foot retail space. Space will be available for 35 to 50 artists.
The co-op will display paintings, ceramics, jewelry, furniture, photography and more.
The gallery is being established by five local artists, including Dan Augstein, furniture and sculpture; Linda Kaneko, jewelry design; Gail Lipson, photography; Jerry Murphy, oil painting; and Rene Sprattling, ceramics.
