Located a block up the hill from downtown Port Orchard and the marina, the Sidney Art Gallery is a terrific place to find artistic treasures by renowned and emerging artists. The Sidney Art Gallery features a monthly exhibition of works of Northwest artists, from brilliant stained glass to nostalgic watercolors.
