The Astoria Art Loft Gallery is open to visitors. The Loft presents shows every month by local, regional and international artists. Receptions for our gallery's featured artists are customarily held to coincide with the ongoing Second Saturday Astoria Artwalk from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
The Artwalk is sponsored by the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association and includes many of the community's prominent galleries and businesses. The cost is free to visitors. The experience is invaluable!
Our Gallery and adjacent space is also available for local events and meetings. For more information and to schedule, contact us at 503-325-4442.
Originally constructed 110 years ago just east of the Megler Bridge in historic Astoria, Oregon, the building's second story was used as an upholstery workshop. The Loft is directly above "Dots 'n Doodles", the Oregon Coast's premier art supply shop. With views of the great Columbia River, we have maintained much of the Loft's original charm. The Gallery, recently remodelled, provides a perfect setting to view and enjoy the work of featured artists. Join us!

Just prior to retiring, Brad spent 13 years as a self-employed web developer, Brad and his wife have traveled extensively throughout the world and have accumulated a sizeable inventory of photographs and videos, which can be seen on YouTube at "81stainless".
