The quality of the art displayed here is impressive -- especially when you consider the size of the town and the fact that this place is staffed by volunteers. Not only do they have the art but they have artist talks and readings.

Port Townsend itself has the "First Saturday Gallery Walks" where all the galleries, including Northwind, open their doors in the late afternoon & early evening on the First Saturday of every month.

I have only found the staff at Northwind to be helpful and excited about sharing.

Sweet little gallery -- a bit off the beaten path of PT's main shopping area, but worth the effort. Art changes out every month so worth a stop whenever you visit.
I like the fact it's a non-profit, supported by the local comunity type of venue.

Northwind Arts Center has two parts...one is a juried show that includes a wide range of fabulous artists from the region. The other is a Showcase Gallery of area artists who have assigned wall or floor space. BOTH are really fine and definitely worth seeing on a trip into Port Townsend. The Gallery is just south of the main part of the town. If you're driving in, it's on the right near the Kitsap Bank. If you're coming from the ferry, it's a short walk south (turn left coming out of ferry area).

This is the best gallery in town: find it on your right past the boatyard driving in to town, and STOP if it is open: Thursday - Monday noon - 5pm. Staffed by volunteers, the main gallery exhibit changes monthly, and features regional artists either by a juried event or special invitation. The rental gallery features 15 or so local artists, with works changing often. Excellent quality, and good variety.
