Embodying the successful mix of art, community and commerce, Astoria’s RiverSea Gallery is the town’s largest and oldest art gallery. It's considered by many to be the hub of the area's local art scene. The Gallery is located in the heart of downtown in an old storefront on Commercial Street. Over the years, it has represented an impressive array of artists.
Visitors will find a highly eclectic assemblage of art at RiverSea, including both original works and fine craft pieces that speak to the area’s creative essence through painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, art glass, woodworking, ceramics, fiber art, furniture and one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces.
At RiverSea’s core is owner and curator Jeannine Grafton’s philosophy that art is a communication process which speaks to us intrinsically, whether it's through the still lifes or landscapes or in the more nonrepresentational way of abstract art, which artist Charles Schweigart often favors. Grafton’s overarching vision for RiverSea was and is to develop it as a destination gallery for the Northwest, support the regional arts community and enhance the stature of Astoria as a cultural destination.
