Artist Cooperative

What’s happening to Gallery 505?

    After three years as Art Gallery 505, we morphed into the Gallery 505 Artist Co-Op beginning in mid 2016. More than a dozen local artists stepped up to help keep the doors open and we are now in our second year as a cooperative. If you are a local artist and are interested in joining our cooperative, please contact us at sales@artgallery505.com or come visit the gallery. Our Gallery and Gift Shop offers a great selection of one-of-a-kind handmade items, most priced at under $100.

Toledo's Art Gallery 505 Gives Local Artists a Chance to Shine

By Aaron Kunkler, The Centralia Chronicle

Sept. 15, 2016

     Tucked away in the resilient town of Toledo is a regional treasure, the Art Gallery 505 artist co-op, which is run by local artists, and showcases rotating displays featuring art from its members and others.

     Located off Cowlitz Street, the humble storefront hides an interior rich with oil and pen drawings, weaved baskets and stained glass artwork.

     Large paintings of birds hang from display racks, along with garments sporting signs urging patrons to try them on as bowls of varying sizes sit around the edges of the room on stands.

     Mike Morgan and his wife, Di Morgan, opened the gallery around three years ago and worked it themselves until recently, deciding to switch to a co-op model.

     “Now that we’ve got 13 of us, we can do it a lot better,” he said.
