Ridgefield and its surrounding area has a small but dedicated artist community. The Alcove Art Gallery is a small (bedroom sized!) art gallery that shows the works of these artists, and participates in a regular "First Friday" (First Friday of the Month) art show.

Due to the size and number of artists, the art works on display in the gallery change every month.

The gallery is a cooperative, and is owned by the participating artists. Therefore, it is not quite the same as a gallery that offers the art work at significantly higher prices than what the artist is going to make off of the sale of the works.

What to Get Here: Paintings, especially of wildlife on the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. This includes prints of paintings on greeting cards. A number of unique items, including jewelry, are offered.

Hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10 to 5. Closed Sunday, Monday and all hollidays. First Friday arts events open until 8.

Address: 328 Pioneer Street, Ridgefield, Washington 98642
Directions: From Interstate 5, take the Ridgefield exit and head west into town. Located on the corner of 4th Avenue on right side of street after entering the town. Walk into Flower Shop and immediately turn left into gallery.
