The Centre Street Arts Gallery LLC (CSAG) is an artist-owned and -operated gallery located in the heart of downtown Bath, Maine, at 11 Centre Street. Twenty member artists work in a variety of media and styles, from abstract to realistic, from oils, watercolors and acrylics to wood and ceramics. The Gallery has been in business since 2012, when 9 founding partners joined together to promote the work of local artists and recruited 11 other artists to broaden and strengthen the gallery’s offerings. Since its first show in December 2012, CSAG has run a member show at least every two months; organized workshops and artist talks; sponsored high school student shows; and hosted guest artists.

The twenty artists at CSAG work cooperatively to support the gallery and each other. They encourage each other’s artistic development, exploration and experimentation through constructive critiques and sharing information on art techniques and opportunities. Each artist also contributes time to ensure smooth gallery operations.

Anyone interested in membership can apply by contacting the gallery at centrestartsgalleryllc@gmail.com.

Many thanks to two of the key people, Jane Morse and Victoria Jackson, who were critical to the gallery’s launch and early success.
