The E Street Gallery, located on Elizabeth Street in downtown Derby, is an impressive space... with a warm and relaxed atmosphere, the Valley Arts Counil invites the public to come by and check out our broad range of eclectic art from all mediums created by our VAC members, all of whom are based locally.

The E Street Gallery is open on Thursdays from 4-8pm, Fridays 4-8pm, Saturdays 12-8 and Sundays from 12-6pm or by appointment.

The E Street Gallery is our way of gaining access to a community of art enthusiasts in the valley and beyond. With Archie Moore's at one end, Connie's just up the street, the Valley Center of the Arts and Ballroom Dance Studio close by, our location in couldn't be better. Diners to area restaurants who use the municipal garage can't help but see the gallery sign above the window and the streets lined with VAC banners, making the gallery visible from Route 8.

They say art can transform a community and this gallery proves it.
