The Gulfport Arts Center is operated by the Gulfport Galleria of Fine Art, a co-operative co-founded by Mary Anne Barkley and the late Kathy McCall immediately after Hurricane Katrina to share the work of local artists. The organization became a 501(c)3 non-profit in 2015, and by agreement with the City of Gulfport, moved into the historic Carnegie Library Building, downtown near the Post Office, and adjacent to the Mississippi Aquarium. The GGFA currently has about thirty members. Membership is open to regional artists interested in displaying their work and being involved in the operation of the Arts Center.

The Gulfport Arts Center offers a large display of a variety of locally-produced art: paintings, pottery, and other crafts, sculpture, jewelry, woodcrafts, and books. This gallery is staffed by GGFA members and is open to the public for free. Most of the art is available for sale. We also offer special exhibits, art classes in a variety of mediums, and children’s art camps.
