Canal Street Art Gallery

23 Canal Street

Bellows Falls, VT 05101



Canal Street Art Gallery exhibits and represents contemporary artists in all mediums and styles, offering a diverse and evolving exhibition program.  

Working with a scope of artists from a range of career levels and backgrounds representative of the rich multitudes drawn to the Great Falls of the Connecticut River here in Rockingham, Vermont, the gallery brings an open space where all creative voices may be heard.  

Canal Street Art Gallery was founded in March, 2017 as Ad Hoc Art Gallery by three artists: Garrison Buxton, Emmett S. Dunbar, and Michael C. Noyes, who saw a need for a centralized and active location for creating and sharing art in the Town of Rockingham, Vermont.  Rockingham includes the Villages of Bellows Falls, Saxtons River, Cambridgeport, and Bartonsville.

The Gallery is located in the Bellows Falls Downtown National Historic District, on the Mary Exner Block, which was restored in 2000.   The Block offers 10 artist Live/work spaces and 6 retail spaces, and is home to RAMP (Rockingham Arts & Museum Project) and Project Space 9, RAMP’s non-profit exhibition space.

“We hope to honor and be a part of the journey creative peoples have been taking in this place for many thousands of years, and to join in the modern efforts to create a free and open arts community here in Rockingham Vermont.”
