History
 

Our doors opened on November 1, 1994, as the Washington Avenue Art Gallery.  
WAAG, as it was dubbed, was located in the Enetai Building, which was later torn down a few years later to make way for the new Kitsap Conference Center and Bremerton Harborside.

 

It was the second gallery to open in downtown Bremerton, forming the core of the Arts District along with Amy Burnett Gallery. These two galleries instituted the monthly First Friday Art Walk, the first of its kind in the West Sound area. They were later joined by the Artists Edge, Metropolis and Glitz galleries, as well as many other downtown shops and museums.

 

In 1996 the gallery moved into its current location in the old McBride's Hallmark building and was renamed Collective Visions.

 

Today
 

We are located at 331 Pacific Avenue, in the heart of downtown Bremerton, on the corner of 4th and Pacific and are open Wednesday through Saturday 12 noon -to 5 pm and Sunday 12 noon to 4 pm.
 

Collective Visions continues as an artist-owned and operated gallery and currently represents works by about 28 Puget Sound artists.

 

The artists produce artwork in many media, including oil, acrylic, pastel, encaustic and watercolor paintings; drawings in pencil and charcoal; etchings, monoprints and collographs; wood carvings; sculpture in stone, wood, metal and polymer clay, a variety of functional and artistic ceramics, color and black and white photography and digital art.
 

On the first Friday of each month, Collective Visions plays host to a gala art opening from 5 to 8 pm where we present works by one or more of our artists in a month-long Feature Show and display new works by the other Collective Visions artists.

 

Our Underground Gallery hosts a new show each month as well. These curated shows represent a variety of artists, art groups, and others interested in sharing our space for their own presentations.

 

We offer an ongoing program of exhibits, lectures, workshops, concerts, and other art-related events to communicate ideas, build community, and enrich and educate our audience.
 

We host the prestigious annual CVG Juried Show each winter, which brings together artists from all over the State. Throughout the year, we present art by local and international artists in our Underground Gallery.

If you are interested in utilizing our space for your next party or reception please contact our gallery at 360-377-8327 for more information.
