Visit UsThe Brentwood Arts Exchange is located on the first floor of the Gateway Arts Center at:
3901 Rhode Island Ave.
AdmissionsThe Gallery and Fine Craft Showcase are open to the public free of charge during all operating hours except during special reserved events. Some events, such as live performances, may require tickets for admission. In those cases, amendments to open public hours will be posted in advance.
Visitor GuidelinesThe Brentwood Arts Exchange asks that all visitors maintain respect for the artwork, staff, building occupants, and other guests. In general, guests should behave as they would when visiting an art museum or gallery: Do not touch any artwork or craft object unless you are explicitly instructed that it is OK to do so. Please keep conversations quiet enough as to not interfere with other patrons’ experience of the artwork.
