Other Ways to Experience Visual Arts in Norfolk
Norfolk Arts encourages everyone to support all Norfolk galleries, groups and establishments bringing visual arts to the forefront in Norfolk, Virginia. Below are some of the many ways you’ll find to celebrate visual arts in Norfolk every day.
The Gallery at East Beach
Norfolk’s East Oceanview has fallen on hard times when the city recognized the unmet potential of life at the beach in an urban setting. Beginning in the early 1990s, the city has transformed the East Ocean View to a vibrant and engaging community. Quiet tree-lined streets lead to the gentle shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Wide beaches beckon resident and traveler alike in an encouraging and relaxing family atmosphere.
Established in October of 2012, Studio CoLab is a creative work space organized by seven people with a similar vision: to share not only a physical place for working, but also an environment for collaboration.
