Welcome to Starbrick Gallery
Housed in a beautifully restored, historic Victorian storefront, the Starbrick Cooperative Gallery is a Fine Art and Gift Cooperative featuring the work of 30 local and regional artists. Visitors have the opportunity to meet artists on location, in the gallery or working on site. The Gallery is filled with pottery, glass, jewelry, clothing, wood works, paintings, handmade cards, photographs, and many more unique handcrafted gifts. We also offer regularly scheduled quarterly classes, private lessons, home school classes, and workshops.
Starbrick Gallery opens a new artist exhibit every month, with opening night on the Final Friday community art walk. This art event is held the last Friday of every month, except December. Galleries and retail shops stay open late, from 6-10 PM. Enjoy artists’ demonstrations, artists at work in studios, openings of new art exhibits, plays and musical shows. Join street musicians, dancers, and sidewalk entertainment amidst artists & craftspeople selling their wares.Tucked in the Foothills of Ohio’s Appalachia, Nelsonville has become a center for regional arts and crafts. Starbrick Gallery is located in the Historic Square Art District of this small town. Here, trademark star bricks were manufactured in the 19th century. Boasting a vein of #5 clay that produced some of the hardest & most durable pavers in the world, the starbrick became world famous. Starbrick Gallery has adopted this symbol of Nelsonville’s past in their efforts to contribute to Nelsonville’s future.
