C’ville Arts: A Cooperative Gallery is a vibrant storefront space featuring handmade works by Virginia artists and craftspeople, located one-half block west of the Central Place on the lively pedestrian mall in historic, downtown Charlottesville, Virginia.
The Gallery provides Charlottesville residents and visitors with the opportunity to view and purchase Charlottesville Crafts & Art from 50 to 60 contemporary Virginia artists year-round.
C’ville Arts offers a tremendous range of crafts and art, including decorative & functional objects for your home & garden, wearable art such as jewelry and scarves, organic balms, photography, paintings, sculpture, and more. As a cooperative, we work together to operate the store, helping keep our art affordable. Visitors are able to meet and chat with the artists who are on duty each day. C’ville Arts has become a popular place to find unique gifts for all occasions and locally made mementos for visitors to our area.
Each month, we feature special exhibitions of new work by artist members, either solo or thematic group shows. We host an opening night reception on the first Friday of the month, in conjunction with the First Fridays gallery openings throughout downtown Charlottesville.
