Stuart's Opera House's lobby doubles as our Gallery 1879 and showcases work from local, regional, and national artists in a variety of mediums. The Gallery 1879 has hosted shows featuring painting, photography, sculpture, letterpress, rare and strange LP art, recycled artwork, and more. Stuart's has hosted shows for numerous artists over the years, with exhibits changing every 1-2 months.
The Gallery 1879 also proudly takes part in Nelsonville's monthly Final Fridays on the Square, an art event that takes place the last Friday of each month. During Final Fridays multiple galleries and shops in Nelsonville's Historic Square Arts District stay open late and present new shows, workshops and more. Our exhibit openings take place on Final Fridays.
