Cotuit Center for the arts houses one of the most beautiful exhibition spaces on Cape Cod.  The gallery is comprised of two levels, extending into the theater space on the upper level.  The exhibits on display rotate approximately every 4-6 weeks.  Most often there are 3 separate shows sharing the gallery space and including 3-dimensional work such as sculpture and pottery.  Exhibitions include solo shows, group shows and open-call juried exhibits and feature works by local, regional and international artists.  Each year the Center features an exhibit dedicated to members of Cotuit Center for the Arts.
