Art & Culture

Browse Coastside art galleries and you’ll discover local artists and craftspeople who’ve translated the beauty of the coast into a variety of mediums, from painting and photography to ceramics and jewelry.

Gallery walls are adorned with paintings of local landscapes, and a glass art studio allows you to take home a glass pumpkin alongside your real one! Theatergoers will be thrilled to learn of our well-regarded repertory theater that has been delighting audiences with exceptional comedies, dramas, and mysteries for over 30 years. And they’re not the only talent you’ll find on stage. Check our Live Music  section for a diverse listing of venues to enjoy live music on the coast.

For even greater insight into the local arts community, make sure to time your visit with the annual Open Studios event which welcomes the public to Coastside artist studios each November on the weekend before Thanksgiving. It’s a great opportunity to connect with local artists and buy direct from their studios.
